Pilot Ground 1 & Pilot Ground 2
What has been your best experience at the Innovation Center?
My best experience has been flying in the simulators. They have helped me progress in flying and have made me a better pilot. It is an amazing experience.

Why should St. Vrain students take courses or get involved at the Innovation Center?

They should take courses and get involved because it is a place where you can expand your knowledge on creative classes like flying. Pilot Ground has given me the opportunity to become a better pilot by teaching me things I didn’t know before and allowing me to use the simulators that at a flight school costs hundreds of dollars to use. I already have my private pilots license because I was able to further my education in a classroom that was challenging, fun, and flexible on what I needed to learn in order to obtain my license.
