Explore the science of flight with this program to introduce youth to how an aircraft flies. Participants will discover the forces of flight and controls of an aircraft during a short tour in our main hangar, and then create their own gliders to control and fly. Youth will then look at how wind can affect how aircraft fly, and how airports work with the wind to get off of the ground.
