MBAA will again be sponsoring four high school students' attendance at this summer's week-long FAA/Mn DOT aviation familiarization program called Aviation Career Education Camp or ACE Camp. According to their website: "Open to Minnesota students who will be entering 10th, 11th, or 12th grade, ACE Camp allows students to explore a wide variety of aviation careers and all aspects of the aviation and aerospace industries through tours and hands-on projects. Campers are also given the opportunity to fly in a helicopter, pilot a single-engine aircraft, and take the controls of a glider."
Campers visit various aviation operations around Minnesota, including several business aviation facilities such as corporate flight departments and FBOs. MBAA also participates by sitting on the student selection panel.
Student applications can be downloaded from ACE Camp's website. Applications should be postmarked by May 6th.
