July 2 - July 28, 2017

Summer school flight training program at Randolph-Macon Academy located in Front Royal, Virginia.

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

  • Aviation ground school, tailored to soloing in a Cessna 172 airplane
  • Approximately 15-20 hours of dual flight instruction
  • FAA medical examination (if necessary)

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.

Please note that international students must provide documentation of their TSA clearance by April 1, 2017, or forfeit their spot in the flight camp.  

For questions about participating in our flight program during the regular school year, contact R-MA Flight Director Laura Abraham.
