WILLIAMSPORT, Md. (DC News Now) — After the pandemic, the aviation industry was impacted heavily resulting in a pilot shortage across the country.
But at Williamsport High School, a new aviation program is bringing up the next generation of aviation workers. Career and Technology Education Teacher, Joe Daversa, said it’s a great opportunity for students to start learning at an altitude.
“It is a four-year pathway for students to learn a stem curriculum that will lead to passing the private pilot knowledge exam, or to have students earn their professional drone license,” Daversa said.
Daversa teaches in the new aviation program at Williamsport High School. It’s the only one of its kind offered in Washington County Public Schools.
