The Flight Academy is an immersive, overnight experience in which cadets protect our nation’s security against enemy combatants using cutting-edge flight simulators modeled after the Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter jet, the most advanced aircraft in the world. This exciting experience is completely hands on, mixing captivating gameplay with education.
Each cadet must work together using skills such as communication, team work, leadership, navigation, applied math concepts and critical thinking. Decisions and actions are put solely in their hands, and mission success is dictated by a unit’s ability to apply these skills efficiently and effectively.
