Wy'East Mountain Academy Aviation Program
Wy’East Mountain Academy, formerly known as Windells Academy, the premier, year-round action sports academy for snowboarding, skiing, skateboarding, and now aviation launches an aviation program for high school students in collaboration with Hillsboro Aero Academy.
Wy’East Mountain Academy and Hillsboro Aero Academy have partnered to create the nation’s first high school boarding school program in which students can earn their professional pilot certifications while at the same time working toward their high school diploma. Students enrolling in the Wy’East Mountain Academy Aviation Program will have the potential to earn their licenses and ratings to become professional airplane or helicopter pilots and obtain an Associate of Applied Science degree in Aviation Science through HAA’s unique partnership with Portland Community College.
The Aviation Program will kick off with the Aviation Discovery Program, a seven-week course providing students with an introduction to multiple areas of aviation.
The Wy’East Mountain Academy Aviation Program is open to both international and domestic students between 14-18 years old. The program will offer students the potential to enter a career that is forecasted to grow exponentially for the next 20 years.
Wy’East Mountain Academy offers educational and athletic training options that span the entire year. With the choice of three full semesters as well as shortened summer programs, Wy’East can tailor a program to meet the needs of your student so they can achieve their goals.
