Aerospace Youth Ambassador Summer Program

The 5th Aerospace Ambassadors Summer Program (2024) aims to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of various aspects of the aviation industry through engaging activities and site visits. Participants will explore the apron, cargo area, maintenance zone, and airport fire service station at the Airport to learn about the basic operations and maintenance knowledge of the apron and airfield, sparking their interest in the aviation industry.

The program includes topics such as aircraft engineering, principles of flight, various site visits, flight simulations, and real flight experiences to deepen participants' understanding of aircraft engineering and aviation knowledge. The objective is to inspire participants to become pilots by teaching them fundamental flight principles and aviation communication terminology, as well as engaging them in flight simulation and site visits. Participants will also learn about air traffic control and aviation services, visit airline training centres and airport terminals, and have the opportunity to experience both simulated and actual flights.
