Curriculum Resources: Sonex Education Initiative projects are not necessarily intended as an all-inclusive course curriculum, but rather a catalyst for inspired learning. We highly encourage teachers to use this project as a hands-on tool to compliment other aviation-related curriculum, or as a way to make an aviation-related link to required school curricula. We encourage you to submit your own curriculum, or modifications you’ve made to our current curriculum resources to us for addition to this site, as we hope to foster the growth of an expanding aviation curriculum knowledgebase available for free download.
