FLY WITH US
THIS SUMMER

Air Camp, Inc. provides students with a variety of opportunities to learn about aviation and the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics of aeronautics. Every day is packed with activities from morning until late evening. Air Camp students take flight ground school, chart their course and fly as a student pilot. They also explore exciting aviation sites around Dayton, Ohio, where the Wright Brothers invented and perfected manned, powered, controlled, heavier-than-air flight. Dayton is home to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, where Air Camp students will get to go behind the scenes and meet scientists from the Air Force Research Laboratory. The week ends with a special team project to plan a humanitarian air mission.
