Developed for students, ages 12-18, Flight Exploration is an introduction to flying and flight training. Students practice flight maneuvers and experience firsthand how the plane responds to flight controls. This hands-on practical experience will allow students to record flight time* while exploring their potential career paths. All Flight Exploration students must obtain an FAA Medical prior to submitting an application. Any student in our Flight Exploration Camp is required to provide TSA-approved documentation. This means a valid passport or driver’s license and original birth certificate.

Tuition for Flight Exploration includes supervised housing, on-campus meals, flight fees, flight instruction, ground lab instruction, flight materials and books.

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

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.
