    Deep Inside New York's JFK Airport, There's A High School

    "New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport is among the busiest in the country: More than 1,000 flights touch down and take off each day. More than 50 million passengers hurry through its gates each year.

    But something else is happening too.

    Not far from the waxed floors of the terminals and the automated voice proclaiming the end of the moving walkway, there's a school. And a classroom that has six wheels, two wings, and a tail. It is a Boeing 727, parked on the tarmac near the hangars and warehouses..."

    2012 Senior Project: Fully Overhauled and Restored Cessna 150K

    During the 2011-2012 school year, Aviation High School seniors worked on a yearlong project to overhaul, repair and refurbish a 1969 Cessna 150K that was sitting in an airfield in upstate New York for over eight years. Led by Aviation Maintenance senior teachers, the students in the hangar set to work stripping the decades old paint, repairing the aircraft, and restoring it to its original beauty, while 5th Year Honors students overhauled the engine at Aviation High School's JFK Annex. The students worked diligently all throughout the year to restore the aircraft and the hard work paid off! By June 2012 the Cessna 150K was running smoothly and shining bright! All the students who worked on the plane were recognized by Principal Charalambous and JetBlue CEO Dave Barger during the 2012 Graduation ceremony. This project was a great testament to the hard work, perseverance, and dedication to the field of aviation that all Aviation High School students are known for. Take a look at the project photo album to see the progress from beginning to end!
