Testimonials

"Indiana ACE Academy has presented so many opportunities in aviation. I get to learn and share the love of aviation first hand, such as exposure to aerodynamics, aviation manufacturing and maintenance, certification process to becoming a pilot, and  flying airplanes in simulators."

Kristofer Fedje

" The ACE Academy provided me an opportunity to understand the aviation industry as a whole. It gave me insight into other jobs outside of pilot and flight attendant within the aviation industry. While at the same time connecting me with valuable people within the unstuffy who can help my career takeoff. Finally ACE Academy is an organization that I can give back to help other young aviators soar to their dreams."

"ACE Academy was a really great experience for me. It allowed me to see the ins and outs of the aviation world and really solidified my passion for flying. The Academy was really well organized and they planned out the week in such a way that I learned a lot, but there were plenty of exciting things mixed into the day as well so it didn't feel at all like a class lecture. At the end of the week the entire group is allowed to take control of an aircraft during mid-flight. This was not only my favorite part of the ACE experience, but it is also the topic I chose to write about on my college acceptance essay that allowed me to attend Purdue University. Today I am a Junior in Aviation Management. I'm not completely sure I would be where I am today had I not have attended the ACE Academy."

"Indy ACE Academy gave me an opportunity to be productive during summer breaks while at the same time, Indy ACE Academy introduced me to my career in the aviation industry. Thanks to the ACE Academy's tireless work, I and many other academy graduates are starting full-time careers throughout the aviation industry. I was able to meet and make many professional contacts who have guided me while making decisions on schooling and career options. If not for the Indy ACE Academy, I would never have learned about the endless career opportunities available for young students in the aviation industry."

Interning with the Indianapolis Ace Camp has opened doors for me in the Field of Aviation. I have learned about many different career paths within the field of aviation on top of having the privilege to visit many different companies that specialize in this field. Thanks to the efforts of Captain Lynch I am now working for the company known as Jetlinx. I will say I value the memories I created with my peers while at the Indianapolis Ace Camp and being able to explore with them was definitely an honor.

Indy Ace provided me an opportunity to learn about the aviation industry at an affordable price, with the highlight of my time there being getting to fly in a small plane with Captain Ryan Lynch. At Ace, I have gained valuable friends and connections that will last me a lifetime, and the experiences that I have had there strengthened my resolve to pursue a career in professional flight. I am getting to live out my childhood dream, and I couldn’t be happier!

Daniel Borre /  Professional Flight / Purdue University

“In 2017, I attended the Indy ACE camp.

The places we went, the people we met, the friends that I still hang out with today, the activities we did, and the life long lessons we learned were all due to ACE. My involvement in ACE has been an amazing and life-altering experience.

I thank Capt. Ryan Lynch for creating this camp and serving as a valued mentor to me and countless other young people.”

Michael Weinblatt / Flight Technology / Vincennes University

"The Indianapolis ACE Academy is an experience like no other.  Attending the ACE Academy is a wonderful chance to explore all of the jobs that pertain to aviation.  Being a student of the ACE Academy has taught me leadership, professionalism, and that being a pilot is not the only profession in aviation.  It opens the doors to the aviation world and gives people a chance to explore a new and exciting career at a point in their lives in which they are planning for their future.  I did not know what I wanted to do after High School until I attended the ACE Academy.  After attending, I decided that I wanted to be a pilot which is just one of hundreds of exciting careers in aviation. The ACE Academy helped me decide what I wanted to do with my life and establish connections in the aviation world as well as make some close friends.  The ACE Academy is not just your every day summer camp, but a professional learning experience with people from the different careers in aviation.  It truly is a wonderful experience that can help somebody like me decide what they want to do for the rest of their life and I would recommend it to anybody."

Kameron Vonderwell, Vincennes University Flight Instructor

" I've went to Indiana ACE Academy for four years and had an awesome experience. This included all the various field trips we get to experience, meeting career professionals, and piloting an airplane. Additionally, I've made some friends throughout this experience. This program is truly outstanding. Thank you to Captain Lynch and Indiana ACE team for all you do."
