An integrated approach to the professional orientation of school students in the field of aviation industry is an integral part of the educational trajectory of highly qualified engineering personnel required to ensure industry leadership. The development of creative and technically competent thinking, familiarization at an early stage of training with new technologies, materials, management skills and programming of unmanned aircraft systems is an integral part of education against the background of ongoing changes in the rocket, space, and aviation industries. The paper also considers the need for additional professional education of school teachers in order to form basic competencies in the field of creating unmanned aerial vehicles. A project for the creation and functioning of aircraft engineering classes based on general education organizations of the subjects of the Russian Federation is presented. The problems of educating technically literate youth are highlighted. It is noted that there is a need to improve the skills of school teachers involved in the project on the creation and operation of engineering classes of an aircraft profile.
