Take Flight Summer Camp is intended for those seriously interested in and considering pursuing their glider or private pilot’s license. Participating in ground school sessions, they will get to apply their instructional knowledge in our Redbird Flight Simulation Lab. Campers will be taken on field trips and tours to local flight schools and colleges with aviation degrees. They will engage in aviation workshops, learning how pilots calculate flight planning, aviation weather, and the basic systems of an airplane. Campers will also have the opportunity to fly in a general aviation aircraft with a certified FAA flight instructor and log their flight time in their log book. The ACE Scholarship Director will also share information about the flight scholarships available to them. Think of this summer camp as a shortened mini-ground school.
