Aviation Discovery Camp

Aviation Discovery Camp

Ever dreamed of flying? 

Join us for our Aviation Discovery program and get your chance to fly in a Cessna 172S flight training aircraft!*

This three-day, residential camp is for students 12-15 years old who are interested in aviation. Students will be taught from ERAU faculty and flight instructors to gain an introductory experience.

Classes will include ground school, ATC Airspace, careers in aviation, aerodynamics, aircraft and aviation safety, accident investigation, Unmanned Aircraft Systems Lab (UAS), and a weather lab. Students will be taking a flight in a Cessna 172 on the second day of the camp, and will learn what flight students do during their trainings. Participants are required to wear closed toed shoes and long pants during their flight times.

We will host a graduation dinner on the last day of the program, which parents/families are welcome and encouraged to attend.

*Flight hours and locations are not guaranteed due to unforeseen circumstances, such as weather. In the event of a cancelled flight, we will do our best to modify remaining flights and adjust the schedule to accommodate previously scheduled flight time.

Registration for Summer 2019 will open on Monday, December 3, 2018.  In the meantime if you would like more information or to be put on our email list, please email us or complete the form on the right.

Summer Overnight Camps

Live on campus like Embry-Riddle students and explore career possibilities in flight, mechanical engineering, global security, or what it is like to be a NASA astronaut.

Embry-Riddle's overnight summer programs at the Daytona Beach Campus and Prescott Campus introduce the technology of today to the aviators, engineers, and astronauts of tomorrow.

Students live in on-campus dormitories — under the supervision of approved counselors — and share their initial experience of University living with other young people near their age
