Summer Flight Academy Countdown
May 15, 2023, Deadline


For many years, the BPA Summer Flight Academy (SFA) has excited young people about flying and their potential as participants in the field of aviation. Furthermore, the Summer Flight Academy has helped them to translate this excitement into academic studies, helping them form the foundation of a productive career in aviation.

The SFA instructors are all experienced flight instructors who volunteer their time and talents to share their combined experience of over 165 years in the field of aviation with the young people in the BPA Summer Flight Academy.

The BPA Summer Flight Academy is held at Houston Southwest Airport (KAXH) in Houston, Texas. Successful participants receive 10 hours of flight time and 40 hours of ground school during the two-week session. Students must have at least a B average and be between the ages of 15 - 19. Students who successfully complete the course and with the approval and supervision of their instructor, may be allowed to perform a solo flight of the aircraft.
