Aviation Club

The Aviation Club consists of aspiring aviators for both the Navy and Marine Corps. Every year the Aviation Club has an aviation related field trip. These locations have included Patuxent River, Maryland, Pensacola and Jacksonville, Florida respectively. While on these field trips, the Midshipman are able to visit squadrons and tour the aircraft they might soon be flying when they started their exciting career in the Navy and Marine Corps. The field trips are not all that the aspiring aviators get to do while in the club. Social events are usually held monthly to discuss aviation-related material as well as just having an excuse to hang out with their fellow peers. The more senior Aviation Club members also share and pass on their knowledge of a test called the Aviation Selection Test Battery (ASTB) that all Navy and Marine Corps aspiring aviators have to take in order to be selected for aviation. The test consists of comprehensive material similar to the SAT and ACT in high school but with more of an aviation twist.
