Erie-Ottawa International Airport in Port Clinton is offering week-long Junior Pilot Camps three times this summer: June 16-20, July 14-18 and Aug. 18-22, 9 a.m-2 p.m. each day.
The “Soar with the Eagles” camp will teach students the basics of flying and will include hands-on experience in the physics of flight and exposure to airport maintenance and management. The class includes an introductory flight in an airplane and in a rotorcraft, a tour of the airport and an opportunity to meet and talk with pilots.
Students will also take a tour of the Liberty Aviation Museum, where they will see World War II vintage aircraft and learn about the history of flight from other vintage items and exhibits.
The $150 fee for the class includes a box lunch each day. A limited number of scholarships are available.
