Escape Velocity Academy

"It's not about your present position, it's all about trajectory"

Escape Velocity’s mission is to provide disadvantaged and underserved youth access to the world of unmanned aviation. Our coaching and mentoring program is designed to help overcome the cost prohibitive pastime of recreational drone flight while also introducing and exploring the wealth of opportunities available in the commercial drone industry. 

DJI Mini 3Pro and DJI Avata

At Escape Velocity Academy we work with minority and at-risk youth and young adults introducing them to endless possibilities through the world of unmanned aviation. 

Through our mentoring program, we help you them to identify, recognize, believe, and actualize who they currently are and who you desire to become. We give them access to tools and activities that are often financially beyond thier means.

We leverage aerial drones to introduce the areas of flight dynamics and aviation, photography and aerial photography, program management, maintenance and repair etc. 

At Escape Velocity Academy we believe that purpose is
potential, but impact is reality. 
We work together to create a purpose driven personal development plan derived from clear and actionable goals that provide a clear sense of what comes next and where to go for resources and support. 



Inspiration / Intrinsic Motivation / Interpersonal Relationships / Investment / Intelligence

Intrinsic motivation - motivated by naturally enjoyable and interesting activities. We do it for the joy it brings.

Intelligence - Embrace the beginner's mindset and commitment to lifelong learning. 

Interpersonal relationships - "You cannot control people; you can only control their proximity to you" - we are the circle we keep.

Invest - Invest in yourself so you have the capacity to invest in others. We cannot pour from an empty cup.

Inspiration - breathwork and learning how to leverage the space between stimulus and response to reduce stress and make better decisions. 

The growth process is not about your current position, it is all about trajectory.
