Teens interested in aviation and with access to Danville, Virginia, will have the chance take to the skies at Averett University’s first aeronautics camp in July, according to Catherine Amos, writing June 11 in the Danville News & Advance.
The two-day camp, open to youths between the ages of ages 12 and 18, will feature classroom instruction, airplane inspection, pre-flight check, simulator practice for emergency situations and actual flight time. Students do not need any flight experience to participate.
“What we’re trying to do is generate interest from local youth to maybe come to Averett in the future and become a pilot,” said Travis Williams, chief flight instructor at Averett.
Campers will also attend lectures, weather briefings and hear a keynote speaker. Williams said the teens would learn about aerodynamics and what it takes to fly every day. They will also learn about new technology additions to Averett’s aviation programs, such as glass panel technology, or onboard computer screens.
