Methods Of Molding
The plastics shop's purpose is to show students how
and why plastics are used," stated Mr. Gerald
Waterbury, the plastic shop instructor.

of objects from coasters to fiberglass clipboards. The
sophomores learn how to use many different methods

plastics together. In the major shop the students made
more complex objects such as molds and kayaks.

Aviation Majors Aim
For Industry Jobs
Aviation, taught by Mr. Tom Kingsbury, worked in
diminished space because Mr. Al. Stiff's beginning
automobile shop was moved into the north end.
Junior and senior Aviation majors studied
meteorology, used weather charts and
instrumentation simulation. Field trips were taken to
Ft. Lewis, National Guard base, and Western Skyways.
Airframe structure repair and fabrication was part of
the junior shop where students also learned about
aircraft riveting, welding, and electrical systems.
Available for study was a Hughes 269 helicopter and
the large seven cylinder Continental engine mounted
in the test cell. The engine, fired up during the annual
Tech Show, always is a great attraction. Instruments
outside the cell let the students take instrument
readings as if actually flying.
Seniors also use and maintain the LINK ANT 18
trainer. "lf they break it, they fix it," stated Mr.
