Have you always dreamed of learning to fly? In this camp, you'll explore the science and physics of flight, participate in ground school lessons, and practice flying using computerized flight simulation software under the guidance of real pilots. You will learn to develop flight plans, practice conducting pre-flight inspections, and explore the many careers in aviation. We'll be taking a trip to the local airport, so you can see how it operates and view some small aircraft up close.
