|UND Aerospace Camp will begin June 18|
The John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences is sponsoring the 23rd International Aerospace Camp with its first session offered June 18. Students from across the United States will visit the Grand Forks’ facilities to experience real-life situations in the exciting world of aviation in conjunction with a taste of college.
This unique camp is open to teenagers (ages 16-17) and offers aviation enthusiasts a chance to attend ground school, log flight time, and learn about the various careers within the aviation industry. The amount of actual flight training makes this summer adventure unique—the sky becomes a college classroom where students fly and log time with flight instructors with six different launches—simulator session, Visual Flight Rules (VFR) flight, Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) flight, cross-country flight, night flight, and an aerobatic flight. They also study flight planning in accordance to a structured college curriculum. They reside in UND residence halls and eat with current UND students at Wilkerson Hall.
A second camp will be held July 9-16. For more information, contact Ken Polovitz at 777-3561.
