For those who want to learn more about the basics of aviation and what kind of careers are available, our ACE program is for you!

Learners get an immersive look behind the scenes with our Aviation Career Exploration (ACE) program. ACE offers an innovative approach to informal learning with a week-long, site-based inquiry program where students and teachers engage in learner-led, design thinking, learning and exploration through mentor presentations, conversations, hands-on activities, and tours. This program is offered in person in Edmonton and Calgary, as well as online.


With locations in Edmonton and Calgary, we offer youth a very unique experience to explore aviation in an immersive, hands-on environment. 

Learners go behind the scenes and discover what it’s really like to work as a Pilot, Aircraft Maintenance Engineer, Air Traffic Controller, and much more!

Our 2021 in-person sessions are currently closed due to COVID-19, but please keep checking back for updates!


Our online ACE training allows anyone with an internet connection to explore aviation careers in an online environment. 

Learning modules including Aviation Basics, Aircraft Maintenance Engineering, Drones, Air Traffic Control, and Airport Operations! Learners can also challenge their minds with an interactive online Escape Room!
