July 3 - July 29, 2016

R-MA offers a summer flight-training program that includes:

  • Aviation ground school, tailored to soloing in a Cessna 172 airplane
  • Approximately 15 hours of dual flight instruction
  • FAA medical examination (if necessary)

Student pilots learn to fly in R-MA's Summer Flight Camp, which includes flight time in a Cessna 172 and ground school classes.This is a unique in-house program: our instructors are R-MA employees, and we own the two aircraft used for training. We plan for students to fly a minimum of four hours per week.  Advanced flight training is available for qualified students. 

Federal Aviation Regulations state that a student must be at least 16 years old to earn solo wings and 17 years old for the private pilot certification.  For safety reasons and because students’ abilities vary, R-MA does not guarantee either solo status or certification regardless of the flight time or costs incurred. Only students with a US passport or US birth certificate can fly in the summer school program.

Flight time will also be available on a per-hour basis for students who are enrolled in classes full-time.  These flight lessons may be arranged on an individual basis.  Space is limited and is reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Due to federal regulations regarding international students and the length of time it takes for them to obtain TSA approval, we are unable to accommodate international students in our four-week summer flight camp. For questions about participating in our flight program during the regular school year,  contact R-MA Flight Director Laura Abraham at labraham@rma.edu.
