SOONER FLIGHT ACADEMY LAUNCHES VIRTUAL AND ONSITE CAMPS

2021 Virtual and Onsite Summer Camp registration opens March 1!

Visit this link to see our camp dates and prices.  

Our virtual summer flight camps, which take place from June 7 to August 6 with a different age group each week, are designed to challenge students ages six to 18 to experience the exciting world of flight. Camps include hands-on activities to help them engage with the science of physics in a fun and interactive way.

Limited-enrollment, in-person Sooner Flight Academy camps for students ages 10 to 18 will also return this summer. In-person camps will run from June 21-Aug. 6, at Max Westheimer Airport, 2113 Goddard Ave., in Norman. Camps will be held for different age groups each week. Due to COVID-19 protocols, camp capacity is limited, and those planning to attend in-person should apply early.

Sooner Flight Academy Programs

We give students in grades K-12 opportunities to imagine, explore and create, while developing a passion for learning and sparking a desire to pursue careers in these fields when they get older.

We use fun physics to introduce students to:

  • How things move by exploring Newton's Laws of Motion
  • How things get lift to fly by experiencing Bernoulli's Principle
  • How weather affects the planet and the pilot
  • Famous Aviators of History, including many Oklahomans
  • Space Exploration
  • and so much more!

Sooner Flight Academy programs help the student remember their childlike curiosity while exploring the world using the scientific method. Students learn that failure is part of learning—and that making mistakes is even necessary—when learning new things. Every experience allows the student to ask better questions and ultimately discover the answers they seek.
