Aviation is a fascinating subject and children are especially curious about the wonders of flight. Encourage their dreams and give them wings! Over the last eight years the team at Atlantic AirVenture have developed a unique range of activities for children with the result that some of our oldest campers are now flying for real. We are thrilled that AvKids Aviation Camp has nurtured them on their journey. Our fun and educational programmes link with the SESE curriculum. ACE Aviation Camps also count toward Scouting Ireland Air Activity Adventure Skills Badges.. About the Camp We begin the day with some ground school, learning about the science behind flight,They learn about topics such as How Aircraft Fly, Controls and Instruments, Flight Planning, and Weather. Then its off to the flight simulators for the daily flight exercise. The budding pilots will follow real world lesson plans and even get to complete a cross country flight following their own flight plan!
As part of the experience children have a chance to get up close and learn more about the Museum aircraft, Plus everyone can have photos taken in full flight gear and demonstrate how an aircraft life vest works for real. The ultimate highlight of the week is always our full scale B737 NG Flight Simulator. Pilots will test their skill and judgment behind the controls for a 15 mile approach and landing into their chosen airport and weather conditions. It’s the dream summer camp for the young aviator!
