Ready for an exhilarating dive into the world of air traffic control? Brace yourself for a week of thrills, challenges, and the chance to step into the shoes of an air traffic controller! In our one-week program, we're not just talking about air traffic control – we're putting you right in the action. Imagine yourself at the helm in our state-of-the-art simulator, experiencing the rush of controlling airplanes with precision and finesse.

Participants will learn real ATC phraseology, rules, and procedures, all operating on the same software used at FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) facilities throughout the United States! During your time in this program, you will learn departure, arrival, and final approach procedures for a real Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) airspace, controlling aircraft every day. You'll be receiving top-notch attention and training, just like our university students. Picture a one-on-one training model with university students and faculty, guiding you every step of the way.

So, are you ready to take the control tower by storm? Join us for a week that's not just educational but a downright blast.

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.
