Aviation Camp: Level 1

Have you always dreamed of learning to fly, or had any interest in flight? Well Aviation Level I Camp is for you. Not only will you learn the mechanics of flight and aviation, but you will also get to participate in group activities and make new friends. In this camp, you'll explore the science and physics of flight, participate in aviation-themed games, and practice flying using computerized flight simulation software. We are also planning a visit to the Robins Air Museum and a tour of a C-130 aircraft. We'll also be taking a trip to the local airport, so you can see how it operates and view some small aircraft up close.
