The 2020 CAU AeroCamp has been canceled. We will keep you posted with updates on the reschedule date.


AeroCamp is a program designed to give young people a unique opportunity to explore the world of aviation and aerospace. As a member of the Flight School Association of North America, California Aeronautical University is proud to host AeroCamp for the youth in our community.

Campers have the opportunity to learn first-hand about the dynamics of airplanes and flight, along with the broad spectrum of careers in the aviation industry. There is a strong education component that all campers receive. Campers have a discovery flight option.

AeroCamp will be a 5-day “day camp.” Costs, listed below, also include meals, a California Aeronautical University t-shirt and all materials and instruction.

Alpha Eta Rho will award (3) $300 scholarships to AeroCamp participants based on application!
