The Department of Aviation Management and Flight at SIU Carbondale offers this week-long aviation camp designed to give interested high school students an opportunity to experience first-hand the thrill of flight. Summer Wings offers those attending the chance to explore a career as a pilot by providing ground and flight training similar to the training that SIU flight students undergo. Participants will attend ground school classes, fly university flight training devices and aircraft (weather permitting), and enjoy evening activities on campus. Students must be completing their freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior year of high school this year to qualify. The camp is limited to 8 students. Please register early. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
