Take Flight Summer Camp

Take Flight Summer Camp is intended for those who are seriously interested in earning their glider license or private pilot’s license. After participating in ground school sessions, campers will get to apply their newly obtained knowledge in our Redbird Flight Simulation Lab. They will be taken on field trips and tours to various aerospace companies. Campers will engage in aviation workshops, learn 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 very own logbook. Think of this summer camp as a much-shortened mini-ground school.
