Space Academy is an increased intensity program of astronaut and mission training and academics. Simulated missions to a space station and crew rotation highlight the week.
Trainees who want to be Astronauts must learn to think like astronauts and our Space Academy Programs are designed to do just that! Participants will have three fields of specialized study (or track options) to choose from: AVIATION, SPACE, and ROBOTICS tracks. Team-Building skills, Space Simulators Training and Space Shuttle Mission Training are just a few of the activities we have waiting for you.
SPACE ACADEMY campers in the Space Track have the opportunity to complete an additional Space Shuttle/Space Station Mission as a member of a different crew (Mission Control, Space Shuttle or Space Station).
Are you ready for the ultimate challenge? Show you have what it takes in the Space Shuttle Mission Competition.
Space & Aviation Track
Learn the basics of flight dynamics, wilderness survival and teamwork. Experience some of the same training all fighter and test pilots go through. Spend time in our high-performance jet fighter simulators learning how to put your jet through its paces.
What makes an airplane fly? We’ll teach you the principles of flight, not in the classroom, but standing next to the real thing: F-14, F-16, T-38 and more!
