Think SummER

The Summer B semester will take place face-to-face instruction combined with safety precautions that include daily wellness checks and the use of face masks for the campus community. You can see these procedures in action on these videos from our Flight Department.

  • Form a bond with peers, instructors, academic advisors, and peer mentors (upperclassmen students)
  • Secure your space in New Residence Hall 2 and keep it through the fall semester
  • Take a developmental class at no cost when you register for at least one other class

Why participate in Early Flight during Think SummER?

  • Opportunity to fly every day (weather permitting) during the summer B session all the way up to the start of fall classes
  • This daily, narrowly focused approach on flight could lead to savings and enhanced learning
  • Make significant progress toward earning your Private Pilot License during the summer which allows you to focus on academic coursework during the fall
  • Form a bond with peers and flight instructors
  • Students electing this model must stay on campus between the end of the summer semester and the beginning of the fall semester

Think SummER gave me a competitive edge for the already competitive environment that is ERAU. Thanks to Think SummER, I have not only been able to excel in flight, but academically as well as socially, with faculty and other students.
