Blended Learning

Replacing outmoded and obsolete educational models, students can work virtually but as a matter of practice will attend school at our Flight Center.

Schedule Flexibility

Our hybrid educational model and the fact that the high school operates 11 months out of the year (closing only in July) allows for tremendous schedule flexibility and opportunity for students. 

Individual & Small Group Instruction

Given the small class sizes, our teachers focus on each individual student’s needs and tailor lesson plans to each student.


The Rising Aviation education program encourages students to advance based on subject mastery rather than standard time-oriented assessments. Students move ahead at their own pace according to prescribed criteria.
