Exploring Aviation and Aerospace will be a fun summer adventure for young people grades 9 through 12. AeroCamp is designed to give young people a unique opportunity to explore the vast and exciting world of aviation and aerospace at the Hayward Airport. Campers learn firsthand about the dynamics of airplanes and flight and about the broad spectrum of careers in the aviation and aerospace industry. We give every camper the opportunity to fly an aircraft if they choose to. However, flight time is only a fraction of the AeroCamp experience and is not required to have a great learning adventure.
Camp begins summer of 2015 9:00-4:00p.m. daily 8/17/15-8/21/15
Young people with little or no previous aviation knowledge or experience would attend our AC BASIC. AC BASIC campers have the following learning experiences:
~What makes an airplane fly
~Who flies airplanes
~Learn about airplane flight controls and instruments
~Learn how to conduct a pre-flight inspection
~Basic information on radio communications
~Learn about airport traffic patterns
~Field trips to various destinations at the airport
~Learn the basics of aeronautical charts
~Orientation flight time of up to 1 hour* (flight time is logable)
*Any camper may elect not to fly.
Students will need to bring lunch, water and sunscreen. We will be flying to lunch one day so no need to bring lunch on that day (date to be determined).
Camp cost: $500. We will require $100 deposit to hold the spot in camp. Release of liability and enrollment form required.
