FL Aviation Center invites teens, ages 13 – 19, to join us this summer for an amazing week with the professional pilots and aviation educators at FL Aviation Center.  Aviation is an exciting and rewarding industry, with a wide variety of career opportunities available inside the cockpit or around the airport. With the current shortage worldwide of pilots and aviation specialists, there has never been a better time to explore the world of flight!

In addition to touring facilities around the airport, students will also receive actual flying lessons. First, in a professional, full-motion flight simulator, and then – with parent’s permission – each student will take the controls and take to the sky – with an FAA certified flight instructor, of course!  These flights are the first steps toward the private pilot’s license.
