Feedback from parents of previous ACE Academy students:“A wonderful experience and opportunity for a great future in aviation.” “This was a wonderfully organized and educationally challenging week.” “The camp was run very professionally yet kid friendly.” “It reinforced the importance of education in succeeding in life.” “Fabulous camp, worth every penny.” “It’s always more educational to have “hands-on” and this camp gave them that opportunity.” “I particularly liked how the attendees were treated as young adults and not like just a group of children.” “A fun, informative, exciting camp!”
