Aerial Training Site is a room in the Ing Hive. It appears in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. It features a Light Portal to the Watch Station, and Wall Jump Surfaces on either side of the portal, leading to an alcove containing a Missile Expansion. Several Ingworm Caches can be seen in the room, as well as a red shield blocking Ing Hive Temple Key 3 on a far ledge. To collect it, the room must be entered from Central Hive West Transport. Once collected, the shield will lower.

The Aether version of this room is the Watch Station.
