There are 8 subjects to choose from, of which only 3 will be studied. They include how a jet engine works, the theory behind rocket power and satellites, how planes and navigators navigate using not just a map and compass, but the full range of instruments a plane offers, they also include the principles of Radar and Radio, as well as the use of Air Power and the construction of planes.
