    • About

      Southern Oregon Air Academy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organized for the purpose of introducing the fields of aviation and aerospace to elementary, middle school, high school and college students through Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.), focused on curriculum and programs developed in collaboration with professional educators.

      Located at the Grants Pass Airport, currently available programs are summer camps for middle schools students (three camps per summer, one each for Grants Pass area students, Illinois Valley students, and Phoenix-Talent area students); middle school after-school drone clubs, where students build a drone, learn to fly a drone, and compete as a team against other area schools; and coming in the 2019-2020 school year, a high school plane-build program, where students build a plane from scratch, learn to fly the plane, and then sell it on the open market to help fund the next plane build project.
