The goal of ACE CAMP is to give students information on aviation history, different career opportunities within aviation, preparing and planning a flight, the physics of flight, and design and maintenance of aircraft. ACE CAMP is an adventure where students use flight simulators and go on field trips to observe various aspects of aviation careers at local aviation industries & airports. Students will have many great opportunities, including a chance to fly in an airplane with the US Aviation Academy.
