PRAIRIE FLIGHT CAMP

Prairie Aviation Flight Camp 2020 CANCELLED

 

Sunday June 28 – Thursday July 2nd, 2020

Our Purpose

Prairie Aviation Training Centre offers an annual summer flight camp to twelve youth (ages 14-18) who have an interest in flying. This is a unique opportunity to get a glimpse into the aviation world before committing to it as a career.  Campers will learn some of the basics of flying, understand what’s involved in getting professional licenses and hear about some of the opportunities that currently exist for pilots in the airlines and mission organizations.

Our Plan
Campers will take part in outdoor activities, classroom ground briefings and airplane flights, including an introduction to aerobatics (for those that are interested).  They will learn how to control an airplane, climb, descend and even fly to another airport! 

If the weather doesn’t cooperate, flight lessons will be flown in our full motion simulator.

Through times around the campfire and interactions with staff and students, we count it a privilege to share about Jesus Christ yet allowing youth to make their own faith decisions.  Our campers come from different backgrounds and we want all to feel welcome!

Our Staff

Our Camp Flight Instructors are all Transport Canada licensed Flight Instructors who have considerable experience in flight training and/or overseas mission flying.  We use the Cessna 172 and Citabria (tail-wheel) airplanes and have access to the vast Alberta prairies where we can take off and land on either paved runways or grass farm airstrips.

Our Camp Student Leaders have a passion for Jesus Christ and for flying. They are excited to get to know the campers and have some fun!

Join us as we inspire the next generation of aviators to dream BIG!
