This summer, kids can literally "take flight" during a Summer Day Camp with the West Michigan Flight Academy.

How cool is this going to be for those who have always dreamed of being able to a plane, of course.....but didn't know that there actually was a place where they could learn.

The West Michigan Flight Academy is the place, at Riverview Airport in Jenison.

There will be two sessions in June, one for beginners, and another for those with a bit of experience.

SESSION 1, Beginner Camp: Are for those students going into 5th - 8th grade. Campers report Monday - Friday 9AM to 1:30PM and Saturday from 12PM to 3PM where campers will get up close and personal with a real aircraft and will be treated to an airplane ride, and pot luck picnic with their families at Riverview Airport!!
