High school trainees are challenged in the fields of aerodynamics, aeronautics and jet propulsion when they experience our most advanced aviation program, MACH III. Hands-on learning activities and instruction give trainees an understanding of the basics of flight physiology and wilderness survival. Trainees receive authentic pre-briefings and the basics of aeronautics and aviation.
Aviation Challenge MACH III is an exciting adventure that takes trainees on a journey like no other. Advanced simulators reinforce leadership, teamwork and decision-making while building realistic piloting skills. Trainees slide down our 150-ft zip line to simulate a parachute water landing and escape and evade enemies on a Seal Ops Mission.
Trainees explore take-offs and landing, air-to-air training, teamwork, aerodynamics and flight physiology. They’ll prove they’re the best in our Top Gun competition where they go head-to-head in a simulated fighter pilot scenario. They’ll learn wilderness survival skills, food procurement, and orienteering.
Aviation Challenge MACH III is a military-style program that uses simulated, realistic combat scenarios. The five-night program begins on Sunday afternoon and graduation is Friday morning. Parents and family members are encouraged to attend the graduation ceremony.
