about us

North Idaho High School Aerospace is a unique educational program based in Sandpoint, Idaho. We operate off of the time volunteered by our passionate volunteers and generous donations. In addition we have the ACES club which is our student-run club open to students from the northern counties of Idaho, whether in traditional schools or alternative programs.  The main focus of ACES is to learn the art and science of building an aircraft.  With guidance from experienced, FAA-licensed aircraft mechanics, builders from the EAA Chapter 1441 and other volunteers, students learn blueprint reading, aircraft structures and systems by actually building a real, flyable aircraft. We are passionate about this program and hope to help students from all walks of life achieve success in their aviation endeavors.
