Project Flight is Ready for Takeoff!

We have 13 students ready to begin our experiment in aviation next week! We will begin with ground school, where students will learn about aviation basics, including what allows a plane to fly. One day we will head to Boston to experience the wind tunnel at MIT. We will also begin flying RC planes through a buddy box, which is a risk-free way for inexperienced fliers to gain experience; if the pilot begins to get into trouble, the instructor can take over control of the plane. After gaining experience through the RC planes as well as iPad simulators, students will fly in a full simulator in Maine.

It will be a great week, the kids are psyched and ready to go!!
