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.
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.
