Aviation Summer Camp : Exploring New Dimensions   A.S.C.E.N.D.
Experiencing the joy of flight can be one of the greatest experiences anyone can have. The rich history of aviation has inspired generations. Whether you are interested in flying as a career, a hobby, or just want to know more, our camp will provide a great experience.

Planning for our ASCEND 2018 is underway. This is the seventh year of our program.  The ASCEND summer camp is a week long day camp that immerses our campers in all aspects of aviation, for hobby or career.  It is based at the EAAgles Nest, the home hangar of EAA Chapter 1083 at the Rowan County Airport in Salisbury, NC. 

 With the generous support of many public as well as private donations, we have made this program a tremedous success. Many of our past "campers" have already received their pilots licence for solo flight or full private pilot privlages. Camp is open to all teens ages 13 to 18.  Thank you for your interest.  

 A.S.C.E.N.D offers a glimpse into what a career path in aviation could be like. If you dream of flying...then fly the dream this summer!
