“Flight Exploration” is a five-day immersive introduction to an aviation career. 

Designed to provide hands-on experience in flight training, the program is presented in three components across five days:  Live flight training in beautiful north central Arizona; Aviation related knowledge topics (Weather, Air Traffic Management, Safety Analysis, Night Operations, Cross Country Operations) presented in an easy-to-understand format; and Instructor-led training in a state-of-the-art flight simulator. Students will be paired for flights in our Cessna 172 aircraft. These “SkyHawks” are all equipped with the latest in advanced avionics (Garmin G1000 System). In addition, each student will also get to try their hand at flying one of our simulators. Our professional collegiate flight training staff will ensure a safe and exciting time in the air and on the ground. At the conclusion of this program, students will leave with an understanding of flight training and collegiate life in pursuit of an aviation career.

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.
