Pilot's Academy

Engage in activities that inspire an understanding of the basic principles and history of flight. Campers will be surrounded by more than 20 real aircraft from helicopters to an F-4 Phantom jet. See and hear planes of all sizes as they land and depart the adjacent runway. Listen as the air traffic controllers communicate with the pilots. Future pilots will learn how to preflight an airplane, a crucial step in the preparation of the aircraft operations. Sit at the controls and discover what all of those strange instruments mean.
