Student Shadows


We invite you to experience a day in the life of a West Michigan Aviation Academy student through a student shadow. On your shadow day, you will be paired with one of our student shadow ambassadors. You will attend classes, meet teachers and talk with other students while gaining firsthand experience of what WMAA has to offer.

Student shadows are reserved for students currently in grades 8th – 11th. If you are interested in scheduling a shadow day, please fill out the Shadow Request Form below and we will contact you with available dates.
