Aero Camp

Island Air Express Offers Local Youths a Flying Adventure at


Aero Camp
AeroCamp is designed to give young people a unique opportunity to explore the vast and exciting world of aviation and aerospace at their local airport.


Campers learn firsthand about the dynamics of airplanes and flight and about the broad spectrum of careers in the aviation and aerospace industry. We give every camper the opportunity to fly an aircraft if they choose to. However, flight time is only a fraction of the AeroCamp experience and is not required to have a great learning adventure.

AeroCamp runs for five days – Monday through Friday – during the summer.

Please contact us for dates, times and pricing.
