Groves HS Aviation Choice Program

Take flight on your career in high school

The Aviation Manufacturing and Service Program is a four-year, high school Choice Program based at Robert W. Groves High School with Savannah-Chatham County Public School System (SCCPSS). Students will gain a fundamental knowledge base in aviation history and regulations, the basic principles of flight, aerospace careers, and factors influencing work systems, aerospace technologies, and basic aviation meteorology. Students will learn the basics of aircraft maintenance, performance, and design. 

Upon program acceptance, students receive courses and training from Savannah-Chatham County instructors (freshman/sophomore years) and Savannah Tech instructors (junior/senior years) to earn three aviation technical certificates of credit (TCC) as dual enrollment students. While in high school, students will have the opportunity to job shadow and complete apprenticeships at Gulfstream. Prior to graduation, students are interviewed and possibly offered positions at Gulfstream.
