Virginia Space Grant Consortium, in partnership with the Commonwealth of Virginia, Averett University, Aviation Adventures, and the Virginia Department of Aviation, is offering flight academies for selected high school students statewide.
Students who are accepted into this program will be assigned to a flight school geographically near their location. The program does not guarantee a specific distance to the flight school from each student’s home, but will make every effort to select a flight school located within a reasonable commuting distance.
Students admitted to this intensive program will undertake ground school and flight training that can culminate in their first solo flight at the end of the academy.
Students must be U.S. citizens, Virginia residents and 16 years old by the start of the Academy. Additional requirements are stated in the application link below.
The Direct Link to the Application is listed below;
