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.
