MAPS Air Academy Program
The MAPS Air Academy is a 10-week program conducted during Summer months for students ages 10 and up with a parent, grandparent or guardian. Typically conducted on Sunday afternoons from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM, the program covers two seminars each week on topics ranging from the History or Flight to Aircraft Controls and Surfaces, from Aircraft Propulsion to Air Traffic Control, from Aviation Weather to Flight Planning. Many of the seminars are “hands-on” for all participants.
Combining Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics
The program combines science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills and processes. For parents, the Air Academy provides you with a unique opportunity to participate in a learning experience with your child – an opportunity that you will not often find.
