Take flight with the National Flight Academy app!

The National Flight Academy (NFA) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) educational organization located aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida. The NFA offers one of the most exciting and immersive learning experiences in the world, inspiring 7-12th graders to take an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through an aviation-themed adventure aboard the massive virtual aircraft carrier, Ambition (CVT-11).

During a typical summer 6-day “Deployment,” students aboard Ambition live the life of a Naval Aviator, utilizing high-tech ready rooms, information and operations centers, and over 30 networked flight simulators to fly challenging missions as they test the experimental X-12 Triad.

Get a taste of our world-class STEM education program as you fly the high-performance X-12 Triad on your mobile device! Take off from NAS Pensacola, zoom to 50,000’ at over Mach 2, then trap aboard the carrier Ambition or make a vertical landing using the X-12’s advance vectored thrust engines and variable geometry wings. After that, take a virtual tour of the ship or examine an interactive model of the X-12!

Could use a little improvement


I like the app, had a bit of fun with it, but I think it would be nice if they added a bit more to it, like fuel, scenarios, and whatnot. But other than that, its okay. The fact that its free is why i give it 4 stars instead of 3, because you just can't find any apps of this quality for free.

I’m at NFA right now and my callsign is duddy and chargers right now it’s graduation day!!!

This is a great app. it shows a lot of promise except it needs more refinement. you need shadowing but is a great flight simulator.
it has a lot of potential for improvement. Bring on the updates...
