Aviation Camp 2021-Registration CLOSED

Registration is now CLOSED for Aviation Camp 2021!

2021 Aviation Camp will be held most Thursdays, beginning June 17th through August 5th. The last day of Camp will be Tuesday, August 10th.

An exciting addition to Aviation Camp this year is our new FAA-Certified Flight Simulator purchased by Howmet. It will give students the opportunity to receive hands-on instruction from pilots to gain real-world experience in flight. Each student will have time on the simulator every day of camp (unless it is a field trip day).

Included in Aviation Camp this year:

  • Flight from local pilot***
  • Learn basic aerodynamics
  • Time on our FAA-Certified Flight Simulator every week
  • Create and test your own airfoil, and learn how the shape affects its lift
  • Field Trips – students in 6th-8th grades will be going to the Challenger Learning Center in Hobart, IN; 9th-12th grades will be going to the South Bend Airport.
  • Tour a B-25J and learn how it helped win WWII
  • Navigation – how do pilots get from Point A to Point B – learn to chart your own course.
  • Optional 2nd field trip to the EAA AirVenture 2021 in OshKosh, WI
