Fly to the cutting edge of aviation in an exploration of the world of experimental aircraft and test aviators!

Take on the challenge of Aviation Camp’s realistic flight simulations!  Master basic procedures in small aircraft, then explore the extreme and exotic including antique airplanes, modern and vintage airliners, aerobatic airplanes, modern fighter aircraft and more!

Construct and fly detailed scale models of both modern and historical aircraft, including models capable of controlled flight. Climb into the cockpits of real seaplanes, helicopters, corporate transports, jetliners and jet fighters and compare their systems with the flight simulation environment.

Examine iconic aircraft from 1869 through the present day and see how new technologies have changed the shape of flying machines across a century of flight.
