Have an Educational Vacation
Stay and Play in Sunny Pensacola While Your Child Has the Time of Their Life at the National Flight Academy
For many, the mere mention of summer evokes fond memories of cherry flavored popsicles, the faint smell of sunscreen, and delight of burying your friends in the sand. Fast forward to present day where summer has now morphed into a time of fastidious planning. Not only planning your family’s summer vacation, but what your child will do during the two plus months they’re free from school. Yes folks, the summer season is fast approaching and for families, this can often mean last-minute plans for summer vacation and arduous decision-making on what to do. Now you can have the best of both worlds by sending your child to the National Flight Academy while you enjoy all of the amenities offered in historic Downtown and Pensacola Beach.
Located adjacent to the famed National in Pensacola, Florida, the National Flight Academy is launching its inaugural year with a bang and has already received far-reaching notoriety from top educators and organizations across the country. Built on the principle of “inspired-play”, the National Flight Academy combines the magic of flight in their aviation-themed adventures with STEM education to create a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. Even more thrilling, the interior of the 100,000 square foot facility is built to resemble a modern aircraft carrier so it actually looks, sounds, and smells like a carrier- creating a truly unique, immersive environment.
So, instead of learning how to paddle a canoe in circles like many of their peers, the Academy’s “experimental pilots” learn how to masterfully solve compelling aviation-themed humanitarian or rescue scenarios. By deciphering multipart STEM problems such as how much fuel they’ll need to deliver supplies to natural disaster victims or flying Air Race missions in an incredibly realistic flight simulator, participants learn critical reasoning principles while working as a team. The National Flight Academy is truly a cool place and the premier destination for this summer and beyond.
Here’s the best part - with partnerships at the best Pensacola hotels, you can now enjoy a cost-effective, stress free vacation while your little loved ones are having the time of their lives. Yes, while your son or daughter is traversing through adrenaline-filled adventures you can sample the local cuisine, learn how to paddleboard, and sip refreshing beverages at the beach. I’d say this is the ultimate Win-Win. Staycation, anyone?
