Flight TrainingEvery summer, Marine Military Academy hosts summer enrichment programs designed to help young men who are not part of the MMA Corps of Cadets succeed academically.
To participate in these programs, the student must attend MMA's month-long summer camp program.
Flight Training Elective at MMA Summer Camp
Introduction to Flight Training (IFT) elective gives summer campers the opportunity to experience the wonder of flight. Orientation flights are among the most exciting aspects of a young man’s life. The program is available for campers 11 years of age and above.
An experienced flight instructor will teach an introductory course in aviation. Campers will learn both in the classroom and at the controls of an aircraft. Campers will have five flights lasting between 45 and 60 minutes each.
The goal is to teach every camper how to taxi, take-off and land an aircraft as well as control the aircraft in flight. While campers progress at their own pace, they will be challenged to learn these basic flight maneuvers during the program.
