Allentown, PA (PRWEB) June 04, 2014

Coast to coast, for the fifth year in a row, youths between the ages of 12-18 will be flocking to their local AeroCamps for the chance to explore aviation and aerospace this summer. AeroCamp is a day camp program hosted by members of the Flight School Association of North America (FSANA). AeroCampers can look forward to a schedule that includes classes and activities like:

  • Learning what makes an airplane fly
  • Understanding aircraft flight controls and instruments
  • Learning radio communication basics
  • Learning about airport traffic patterns
  • Reading aeronautical charts
  • Flying an airplane and logging flight time
  • Visiting aviation- and aerospace-related facilities and businesses
A favorite highlight of campers is visits to nearby aviation-related facilities that can include airport facilities, aircraft maintenance and repair firms, and air traffic control towers.

The feedback over the past few years has been an overwhelming thumbs up from the campers and host flight schools. Many schools are also offering advanced AeroCamp programs over the summer geared to returning AeroCampers or youth with previous aviation knowledge; other schools now offer AeroCamp year round.
