FRIDAY FLIGHTS (Ages 4 and 5)
Children explore “Space,” meet a “Famous Flyer,” take a “Trip to the Airport” and end with “Let’s Take a Flight.”
FRIDAY LAUNCH (Ages 6 and 7)
Students learn the basics of flight with “Kites,” “Balloons,” “Butterflies,” and “Birds.”
AVIATOR’S WORKSHOP (Grades 3 through 6)
Students discover basic principles of flight with unique paper airplanes and a Flight Controls Trainer, work with aerial navigation charts, learn the International Phonetic Alphabet, visit aviation facilities at Dallas Love Field, and build and fly their own powered model airplane.
ROCKET SCIENCE (Grades (3 through 6)
From the early Chinese rockets toAmerica’s missions to Mars, students explore the history of space flight, the Solar System, the mathematics of rocketry, and spacecraft engineering. They also design a space ship and build and launch a model rocket.
AERO LAB (Grades 7 and 8)
In a fun and challenging four-day experience, students gain a basic knowledge of flying weather, study aerial charts, and complete an aerial navigation exercise. They also conduct experiments on our new wind tunnel and go on a behind-the-scenes tour of D/FW International Airport.
ROCKET LAB (Grades 7 and 8)
Students construct their own advanced model rocket and participate in a space survival exercise. They also work in teams to plan a Martian space mission and build a multi-stage rocket. On a field trip to a local university, they launch their rockets and tour the campus’s science labs.
ADVANCED AERO (Grades 9 and 10)
Students focus on engineering projects. They will explore engineering principles while designing and building their own structures and applying their knowledge to aircraft design, load-bearing structures, and aircraft accident investigation.
