About this camp

Aviation Immersion Camp
 

The Aviation Immersion CAMP (AIC) is a dynamic, hands-on aviation immersion program designed to allow students to master the fundamentals of aviation and passenger jet operations, while traveling in the virtual world of simulation to various exotic destinations: Hong Kong, Sint Maarten, Dubai, Paris, Rio etc. From inter-active classroom flight briefings to learning to communicate on the aircraft radio with Air Traffic Control, while flying approaches in zero visibility in the Boeing 777 simulator. The camp is designed to put the responsibility of aircraft operations directly under the command of each student. Like a team sport environment, the AIC requires that everyone work together in a coordinated effort to meet the challenges of flight.


The Our Kids review of Aviation Immersion Camp

 

Flying involves a host of interpersonal and technical skills and aptitudes, and the Aviation Immersion Camp was formed to develop them, including communication, collaboration, analysis, and an ability to engage effectively within complex systems. The flying takes place within a series of simulators, environments that are in every way identical to their professional correlates, with the only exception that they don’t leave the ground. Participants cover everything from the theory of flight, the basics of meteorology, to the details of in-flight, real-time operations. It’s unique, to be sure, and that’s what draws families and drives the excitement of the campers that attend. The structure of the setting includes defined roles and ranks, which for many kids is part of the thrill of it all. Yes, some will want to go on to careers in commercial aviation, though these sessions will appeal to a wider audience of young people than that, including those who are drawn to topics in engineering, as well as those who simply dream of flying. The instructors are passionate professionals who, like founder Aaron Murphy, approach the endeavour with equal parts intelligence, experience, and wonder.

Director's Message

Aaron Murphy, Director of the AIC and Flight Simulator Operations Training

Hello and thank-you for visiting the Aviation Immersion C.A.M.P. profile on the ourkids.net!

I have had some of my most incredible life experiences in airplanes: from the lofty highs of euphoria to the stone-cold, iron butterflies-in-my-gut of absolute terror, but usually everything in between. Each and every flight is a testament to human ingenuity, perseverance and good old fashioned courage. On December 17, 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright were the first to crack the aerodynamic and engineering codes for the first powered flight of the Wright Flyer at about 48 KPH, and just a mere 44 years later on October 14, 1947, Captain Charles Elwood Yeager piloted his Bell X-1 named "Glamorous Glennis" to the eyeball watering speed of Mach 1.07. (Elwood. Love that name!) Yeager would go into the history books with the incredible distinction of being the first human to break the sound barrier. Since then, humanity has been to the moon a few times, had many super-sonic joy rides in the majestic Concorde at Mach 2+ and went an absolutely eyeball flattening Mach 6.7 in the North American X-15! Yikes! Now we even have folks living on an extra-terrestrial outpost called the International Space Station, orbiting the earth at approximately Mach 22! Ludicrous speed indeed! The ISS is the first of several inter-planetary stepping stones to our next destination: Mars.

My vision for the AIC is to give students of all ages a place where they can explore the incredibly challenging, demanding and fascinating world of aviation and all of its supporting subjects. Who knows? Some AIC participants just might become airline pilots and maybe, just maybe, a few will go to Mars.

It was a sunny and warm 12th of September in 1962 before a crowd of 40,000 at the Rice University Football Stadium, when John F Kennedy spoke some of his most powerful and inspiring words of his presidency in his famous speech to persuade America to support the Apollo program and land a man on the moon:

"...We choose to go to the Moon...we choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win, and the others, too..."

We all need to challenge ourselves. Constantly.

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for Mankind." (Neil Armstrong's famous televised radio transmission on July 20, 1969 as he stepped down off the lunar lander to be the first human to walk on the moon.)

Mission accomplished. Next? Mars!
