"Education is the ability to meet life’s situations"
Dr. John G. Hibben, former President of Princeton University
Welcome to Minnesota's Aviation Career Education Camp, a week-long camp held each summer that connects students with the opportunity to explore a wide variety of aviation careers through hands on projects, tours and flight experience.
Every hour in the air is preceded by hours of theory on the ground. Students will be exposed to their first lessons on a variety of topics that include physics, aircraft systems, airline operations, air traffic control and aerodynamics. The time spent in the classroom leads to a well-rounded aviation professional.
During ACE camp, students will log their first flight hours with FAA Certified Flight Instructors. Students will pilot a single-engine aircraft, gliders, helicopters and two full-motion airline simulators. Some years students have had the opportunity to ride along with the Air Force Reserve in their C-130 Hercules transport aircraft!
With more than 40 tours and speakers throughout the week there is something special for every interest. Whether becoming a pilot, air traffic controller, maintenance technician, drone operator, aerospace engineer or one of the thousands of career paths aviation offers we have what you're looking for.
