  • Flight Simulator Lab

    Students at Farnsworth Aerospace have high expectations for each other. With our state-of-the-art flight simulators, those expectations feel real. At 2,000 feet, there are no excuses, their team is depending on them. In 2021, our flight sim labs was fully updated with virtual reality film simulator systems.

School Profile

Principal Hamilton Bell

    A favorite quote of mine is from the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “True compassion is more than flinging a coin at a beggar, it is understanding that the edifice which produces the beggars needs restructuring.” Regarding academic success, nothing replaces good instruction from committed teachers. I empower all staff to help the children and families in whatever ways they see fit. I always tell teachers, give me 100% and let’s get the job done! And that is what they do.
