Camp Instructor – Full Time / Part Time

Join us to work with kids and aircraft at the Hiller Aviation Museum!

Aviation Camp instructors teach hands-on science- and flight-themed lessons to students Grades K-8 while working behind-the-scenes at a unique Museum located at one of California’s busiest small airports. Activities include building and flying various model aircraft, completing realistic flight simulations, working inside the cockpits of historic aircraft, building and programming small robots, using computer aided design and 3D printers and more.

Experience Requirements

Instructors must have experience working with elementary or middle-school children and good classroom management skills. Familiarity with aviation is a plus but not essential—good teachers comfortable teaching elementary science can readily learn the aerospace-specific content with the provided curriculum and training.

Instructor positions pay $19.00 – $22.00/hr depending on experience, with a $100/wk bonus for availability July 25 – August 12. Aviation Camp instructional positions vary with enrollment but are usually 8 AM – 4:30 PM or 9 AM – 5:30 PM Monday through Friday.  Aviation Camp runs June 6-September 2, with training June 2-4.  Applicants should have availability for at least six weeks of Aviation Camp, or the entire period July 25-August 12, in order to be considered.
