Middle/High School Ages

Young Aviator Academy is specifically designed for boys and girls ages 12-17 to spark and nurture their interest in science and to provide an exciting opportunity to explore the world of aviation. There is hardly a better way to introduce STEM to children than through aviation. Young Aviators will learn hands-on about multitude of aerodynamics topics, flight planning and flying an actual airplane, if they choose to.


LEARN TO FLY AND FLY

Your will learn the basic principles of aerodynamics, flight instruments, controls, weather patterns, communications and charts and will have the opportunity to apply it in a simulator and a real airplane, accompanied by an FAA certified flight instructor.

IT IS ALL ABOUT SCIENCE

First things first. Understanding the scientific principles of flight is the foundations of learning how to fly. We will also learn about technology, design and mathematical calculation necessary to carry out a flight.

ENGAGE AND INTERACT

Our lessons are built on innovative learning practices to encourage engagement and interaction throughout the session. Activities, scenarios, games and airport tours to reinforce the learning are woven into each lesson.

BE CREATIVE AND THINK

We will look at the things from different perspectives and focus on solving challenging problems.

What is included in our program?

  • Five 90-minute classroom sessions
  • One flight session with an FAA-certified instructor in one of our airplanes (a parent is welcome to sit in the back during flight, complimentary)
  • Pilot logbook to log your flight time
  • Refreshments for all our aviators during sessions
  • Complimentary picture taking
  • Graduation day with our young aviators and parents (students will receive Academy flying certificate and a gift)
  • Young Aviator Academy T-shirt
  • Training materials and learning resources
