One Day Camp Held by held by Flight Camp USA and Rider Jet Center

August 29, 2005, Hagerstown, Maryland — A one day flight camp will be held by Flight Camp USA in cooperation with Rider Jet Center at the Hagerstown Regional Airport, Saturday, September 10, 2005. The camp will introduce students to aviation and provide them with the opportunity to actually fly an airplane. The camp is open to students ages 13 to adult and will take place from 8am-5pm at the airport. Advance registration is required and the cost of the camp is $299. Anyone who has ever had an interest in aviation should take advantage of this opportunity.

The program will include each student making 3 flights in an airplane. Prior to and in between flights, students will be introduced to aircraft systems and controls, aircraft safety procedures, basic navigation, and airport operation. Students will be able to share their flight experiences over lunch which will be provided. Sunday, April 11, 2005 will provide a substitute date in the event of a weather cancellation.

Space is limited to a maximum of nine students for the camp so that each student can receive direct instructor interaction. All instruction is provided by FAA Certified Instructors and students will receive logbook endorsements for the training which will count toward a private or sport pilot certificate if a student should decide to pursue further training.

The intent of the camp is to provide the opportunity for students to be exposed to flying and decide if pursuing a pilot certificate is of interest without the full expense and commitment of signing a contract with a flight school.

Flight Camp USA holds camps at various airports throughout the country. Other camps can be scheduled by arrangement. Flight Camp USA provides camps of various lengths and curriculum depending on student needs and interests.
