Camp’s on!!!  There’s still time!  Don’t let summer fly by without investing in your child’s future at our Aviation Academy, July 20-24, 9am-3pm daily. This 5 day course will enrich your 5th-9th grader’s science and technology base by exposing them to all things aviation.

Campers will complete 5 days of hands on learning and fun. We will walk them through the history, theory and science of aviation. We begin with lessons on hot air balloons and gliders, and then move on to radiocontrolled airplanes and rockets. Ground school instructions and simulators prepare our campers for an introductory flight in a real general aviation plane.

Our certified FAA pilots will instruct students in the basics of flight. Career pilots will expose your children to the bright future of aviation. Our experienced staff will provide a wealth of knowledge unmatched in value.

Wrapped in a fun camp atmosphere, your camper will be inspired and leave with a new appreciation for aviation. Whether this sparks their interest toward a future career in aviation or just deepens their knowledge of all things flying, our Aviation Summer Academy is an invaluable experience for your 5th-9th grader.

In an effort to give our daily campers a safe/sanitized environment, we have put in place extra measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will operate under the guidelines for youth day camps mandated by the Governor and the Ohio Department of Health, such as but not limited to reduced staff to child ratios, daily temperature checks for staff and campers, daily symptom assessments, and rigorous hand washing procedures.
