Flight Academy

What is the NFA-ACE? What do you learn from the NFA-ACE?

The NFA-ACE stands for the "National Flight Academy-Aviation Classroom Experience". It is an immersive, game-based learning environment where the students are taught Science, Math, Engineering and also technology in the context of Aviation. 

While in ACE, students have the ability to engage in increasingly challenging, story-driven experiences where they can solve real-world problems in a fast-paced, immersive environment. Students also engage more with learning objectives when preparing for a competitive event according to research that has been shown, so a major aspect of ACE is competition. During flight missions, the students are also motivated to learn the acquired skills due to knowing that the skills will be tested. 

ACE offers contextualized learning within the story of Aviation. Teaching is more relevant when the students can apply what they're learning to realistic situations.
