NATIONAL FLIGHT ACADEMY SPONSORSHIP APPLICATION
APPLICATION DEADLINE: April 12th, 2019
ASRC Industrial Services will be sponsoring a group of ASRC Shareholder students to attend The National Flight Academy July 7th-12th, 2019. The National Flight Academy Deployment is a flagship program which combines the culture and excitement of aviation with 21st century technology and core competencies in an exclusive, entertaining and engaging environment to provide a one of a kind learning adventure for our youth.
Students who have completed 6th grade but have not yet graduated high school are invited to live for six days in a multi-story facility called Ambition. The first deck houses the galley, mess deck, administrative spaces and the main simulator bays. The second deck is compromised of the academic spaces and contains all Simulation and Immersion Center spaces. The third and fourth decks are dedicated student aviator lounges and activity rooms.
Students experience theme-park style thrills surrounded by advanced technology, flight simulators and virtual reality missions that ignite imagination and encourage learning. While living aboard Ambition, Ambition eXperimental Pilots (AXPs) are immersed in life as a Naval Aviator aboard a modern aircraft carrier. Missions progressively become more challenging throughout the week as the AXPs advance their aviation science and communication skills.

The National Flight Academy will take place July 7th-12th, 2019 in Pensacola, Florida with a planned activity day on the 13th in Pensacola, FL. Due to the length of time required for some of our students to reach Pensacola, ASRC Industrial Services has arranged to have our students arrive a day early and will be staying in a hotel the evening of the 12th and 13th before returning home on the 14th/15th. Therefore student travel dates are planned to be: July 5th/6th – 14th/15th of 2019
Students will be selected through an essay contest and application process. Applications and essays are due April 12th, 2019 and be notified April 19th, 2019. Travel arrangements will be made upon notification, and additional National Flight Academy Portal registration instructions will be given.
