Fledgling Students at the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering

Today was the second day of school at the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering at John Wallace Middle School, and we have already started “flying.” Students learned about aircraft identification this morning, researched an aircraft of their choice, then learned the basics of flight simulator operations. We had fun trying to fly! As time goes on, these students have the chance to become proficient, not only at the skills involved in flying, but also in the life skills of problem solving, working in teams, communicating, and continuously learning. The following photos show the student “crews” (groups of 4 students) trying their hand at the HotSeat Chassis Edustation flight simulators:
