High school students’ interest soared during the annual Lewis University Aviation Summer Camp on the university’s main campus in Romeoville, Ill. Participants piloted a general aviation aircraft and trained in an FAA-approved-flight simulator, among other activities.
A summer aviation camp for high school students will held June 18-22 on Lewis University’s Main Campus in Romeoville, Ill.
