Destination Aviation Summer Camp

Destination Aviation Summer Camp

Know an aspiring aviator?

Destination Aviation Summer Camp is an immersive 1 week experience of ground school, field trips and a flight opportunity with a certified instructor for campers 11 to 18 years of age*.

Offering both residential and day camp options, Destination Aviation is located at the beautiful SUN ‘n FUN Expo campus on the southwest corner of Lakeland Linder International Airport (KLAL) in Lakeland, Florida.

Instruction topics include:

  • aircraft familiarization
  • cockpit instruments
  • aerodynamics
  • concept reinforcement using flight simulators

The flight opportunity consists of campers planning and piloting a cross-country course over the east coast of Florida. Two to three campers each fly a leg of a course in dual instruction from a certified FlightSafety International instructor. The camper’s loggable flight experience may include approximately 20 minutes of flight time plus a takeoff and landing. Camp concludes on Friday with an Open House for families during which each camper presents a topic they’ve learned during the week and everyone is welcome to take a tour of the facilities of the Aerospace Center for Excellence. With a limited number of campers their own age in each session, campers are sure to have a positive experience.
