Flight Training for Kids: Young Aviators Club

14 September 2021   Young Aviators Club

Everybody has thought about flying at one point or another. Especially kids who have developed a fascination with toy planes from an early age. Have your children expressed interest in becoming a pilot? At Monmouth Executive Airport, we have flight training for kids through our Young Aviators Club; it’s a great way for children to explore a new interest, gain invaluable skills, and potentially find a future career path! 

We’re passionate about flying and we love sharing that passion with our local community.  With the help of our top-rated flight school instructors, we created the Young Aviators Club to offer a free flying lesson to all children ages 8 – 17, followed by additional lessons and educational courses if your kids are interested. If this sounds like something your kids would enjoy then please get in touch or keep reading to learn more about the Young Aviators Club in NJ. 

History of the Young Aviators Club

Several years ago we formed a partnership with the Wall Township community in New Jersey, which is located just minutes away from Monmouth Executive Airport. In order to share our passion for flying, we offer one free flying lesson for all local kids between ages 8 and 17, accompanied and supervised by a fully-licensed flight instructor. 

A great alternative to traditional summer camp, our flight school gives children a chance to try something new and exciting. Young flyers can fulfill their dreams of soaring through the sky, and we also offer full scholarships to select children in order to complete their VFR rating. 

What to expect at The Young Aviators Club?

The first lesson starts outside the aircraft and takes place entirely on the ground. We walk our young flyers around the outside of the aircraft, teaching them the components and their functions during flight. We then tour the inside of the aircraft to do the same.

Once all safety procedures have been carried out, it’s time to take to the skies! Our fully-licensed flight instructors will guide our young learners up into the air, helping them pilot their very first flight. It’s a thrill they will never forget.
