PATH to Aviation

AOPA has created an exciting and highly educational book with supporting resources and materials especially for pilots and secondary school teachers. It's called PATH—Pilots and Teachers Handbook—and it effectively connects math, science, physics, history, and technology to the basics of general aviation. The PATH program is a great tool for anyone wanting to foster an aviation interest in today’s youth.
