We would like to say THANK YOU to all who have donated and sponsored for this year's Summer Aviation Camp!
For the past fourteen years, the Aviation Museum of Kentucky, Inc. has conducted summer aviation camps for youth in Kentucky. Nearly 3,000 students ages 10 –16 have attended. The success of the program can be attributed to an exciting program in aviation and to a staff made up primarily of school teachers. Such a camp will be held once again this summer at the Bowling Green-Warren County Regional Airport. Much of the content of the camp utilizes science and math skills to teach navigation, aeronautics, weather, aviation technology, flight simulation, and much more. The highlight of the camp is a flight in which the student assists the pilot, a Certified Flight Instructor.
On July 6th-7th, there were approximately 40 students who were able to attend the first & second day of camp.
Twenty-two of those students were awarded scholarships to attend!
By the excitement and look on each child’s face throughout the day, there was no doubt the Aviation Summer Camp, 2017 was another success!
