The Aim High Flight Academy (AHFA) is an aviation scholarship for a three-week introductory flight program at various universities throughout the country. The program is designed to inspire young adults to explore aviation. Students receive one-on-one training from Air Force and Certified Flight Instructors in a classroom and in the sky
The AIM HIGH Flight Academy three-week program helps students gain confidence in aviation and prepares them to learn everything necessary to achieve up to 15 flight hours. A typical day in the program includes three key segments: flight simulator time, academic classroom time and flight time. The students will be assigned to a flight, paired with a wingman and an Air Force mentor to study and fly with throughout the program. Other activities the students will participate in include team building, study time and character development.
The mission of the AHFA is to inform, influence, and inspire the next generation of aviators and leaders. After completion of the AHFA, students will understand the pathways to become an Air Force officer, aviator, and earn up to 15 flight hours.
