Student fuel up a Cessna 172 in preparation for their flight lesson during the aviation camp held at Randolph- Macon Academy each summer.

June 28-July 24, 2020

Students will explore aviation by training in our aircraft, learning from industry professionals, visiting aviation businesses and museums, and flying unmanned/remote aircraft. Interested students may also complete the FAA remote pilot (drone) certification (test fee extra).

We offer first-class instruction both in the air and on the ground, preparing the next generation of aviators while discovering the unlimited opportunities a career in aviation presents.

This summer camp is designed for those who want to experience the magic of aviation and find new and interesting ways to challenge themselves. 

In addition to flight time in the Academy's Cessna 172, the flight camp has brought to campus a hot air balloon and a helicopter.

Our program features two school-owned Cessna 172 Skyhawks (four-seat aircraft), which are hangared year-round by the Academy. Our Flight Instructors are full-time R-MA employees.

Flight training will be billed at a rate of $160 per hour. 

A flight deposit of $2,300 is required and any unused portion of the flight deposit will be refunded.

International Students interested in flight training must provide documentation of their TSA clearance by April 1, 2020.
