Aviation vocabulary, ideas, and basic principles are taught.
April 30 10am – noon (Museum of Flight)
The principles and ideas learned are put into practice as “novice pilots”
Aviation Learning Center (for 4th grade and up)
Be a pilot for a day.
Enter a hands-on learning environment where critical thinking, scientific inquiry, problem solving, and technical reading and writing skills are practiced. In the Rajpaul Learning Laboratory, ten interactive computer-based workstations await to present various aviation topics a pilot must understand. Then after planning a cross country flight, preflight an actual Cirrus R20 aircraft and fly the flight using advanced software in our simulation bay.
Flight Captains (for K-3rd grade)
In this interactive program, participants discover how airplane parts work together, experience imagination-fueled flights in one of the Flight Zone’s many real aircraft, and assemble and test model gliders
The cost for this field trip is as follows:
$16 - Students 4th grade and up
$12 - Students K-3rd grade

We have 5 chaperones in each age group that are free. All extra adults are $15. We have tried to spread the cost of free and extras to accomodate all who wish to attend - but please be aware there may be a balance due depending on the number of adults attending.
