Career and Technical Education Program Highlights
Westmoor High School Aviation Maintenance Class (Jefferson Union High School District)
In October 2021, students in Mr. Dyssegard's Aviation Maintenance class at Westmoor High School in Daly City got a real-life taste of what it means to be involved in airline maintenance – both in commercial aviation and in the military. The school is part of the Choose Aerospace pilot program for high school students managed by ATEC (The Aviation Technician Education Council). They are using an online curriculum to learn the general portion of the Airframe and Powerplant (A & P) certification curriculum for Aviation Maintenance.
On Friday, October 8, the aerospace students had a field trip to Oakland Airport, organized by the U.S. Air Force. The students were able to talk with U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force aviation mechanics and see the inner workings of the F-16 and F-18 jets.
