Overview

Our academy introduces students to a world off of the ground. Students are exposed to concepts, ideas, and careers within the aerospace industry anywhere from flying, maintenance, engineering, to space exploration. Our students not only learn where aviation started but all the new and future projects being worked on by those still active in the aviation community. Through project based learning, field studies and guest speakers the students gain insight into this field no one else has access to.
