Fun & Adventure in the Flight Academy Summer Camp

Chris Hauff Jun 18, 2014

Flying a F-35B fighter jet is no easy task, just ask any one of the dozen or so 11-15 year olds who have been learning to fly the aircraft in the Patriots Point Flight Academy all week.

The young pilots in the academy train through a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) based program.  The curriculum not only teaches the principles of flight, but also: aviation history, military communication history, carrier history, leadership skills and weather.
