Experience the excitement of aerodynamics! This 5 day course begins with basic history of manned flight and what makes things fly. The students build kites, gliders, hot-air balloons and aircraft models. They experiment with thrust, drag and lift; study the engine, controls, and instruments; do flight planning; fly a radio controlled airplane; and end the week with an orientation flight in a general aviation aircraft! Flight groups are composed of 5 students and one flight instructor.
