This three hour workshop provides a hand-on learning experience including fundamentals of flight, aircraft design, and piloting. Scouts prepare a flight plan, map their flight, and conduct a pre-flight inspection in our Mooney Hangar with the Ovation small aircraft. Then fly the route in the flight simulators in real time over accurate landscape to land at Scholes Airport in Galveston. After a classroom preview, use the exhibits in the Flight Academy to demonstrate your knowledge of flight dynamics and tour the collection of air-worthy Warbirds.

Price: $35 per Scout. Parents or siblings must pay the regular admission fee if staying in the museum.
