Aviation Career Education (ACE) Academy Program

ACE Academies are summer educational programs for middle and high school students that can last from one day to one week and are co-sponsored by FAA along with many other organizations.

The focus is on aviation career exploration with emphasis on opportunities for women and minorities. Students experience instruction in aviation history, the physics of flight, field trips to aviation sites and hands-on activities.

Our goal is to have one program in each state and U.S. territory.  This program reaches approximately 2,000 students each summer. Dates, locations, cost and age requirements vary according to sponsoring organizations.  Watch the video below to learn more.
