The A.I.R. program takes place onboard Ambition, located on the grounds of the National Naval Aviation museum in Pensacola, Florida. For multiple days, 7th - 12th graders compete against each other in engaging and intense real-life scenarios that combine the thrill of flight with critical thinking techniques.
