The ACE Academy provides unique summer aviation education programs for elementary, middle and high school students who are interested in aviation and aerospace. The program provides students with a wide range of aviation career exploration experiences and also focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
ACE academies nationwide reach 1,500–2,000 students each summer. These summer programs expose students to the following activities:
Lessons in aviation history
Field trips to aviation-related sites
Instruction on aircraft design and maintenance
Simulators and, in some locations, flights in aircraft
Careers in Aviation
Dates, locations, cost and age requirements vary according to sponsoring organizations.
Our young men and women are our most valuable resource, and we are committed to continuing this exciting outreach program focused on creating the next generation of aerospace professionals.
