1st high school program in USA.


We are excited to be the first high school level program in the country to feature our very own, completely unautomated, drone demonstration team.  

We spend long hours perfecting our maneuvers and mixing the music with narration to create a one of a kind visual and auditory experience. Pilots and team members travel to airshows, schools and other events to showcase their maneuvering skills in close formation flight.  

Our pilots fly under the “Scout 01” through “Scout 06” callsigns, and each earns their place on the team through a rigorous interview and evaluation process held in December. 

We also have student positions available for setup crew, safety officer and sound technician this year.  

The 2021-22 schedule is already filling up so if you have a student that meets the prerequisites below, please contact the academy.


  • Must consistently hold a 90% or better in all core classes
  • Drone Demonstration Team requires successful completion of introduction to drone operation course
  • Must own and be proficient on DJI’s Mavic Pro system
  • Flight evaluation of qualified drone pilots that have not completed the introductory course but would like to audition for the team will be on a case by case basis by the Aviation Studies Director
