COURSE DESCRIPTION

We will offer a 2-week summer day camp for high-school students. In this aviation camp, the students will experience three-dimensional thinking while learning how to analyze data and apply critical thinking skills to appropriately manipulate airplane controls. Our high school Aviation Camp is approved by the NC Department of Transportation as an Aviation Career Educational Program or ACE camp. The camp will consist of 80 student contact hours and cover the following topics:
  • the history of aviation
  • aerodynamics relative to unpowered and powered flight
  • hot air balloon theory and construction
  • a series of hands-on class projects including wind tunnel testing on airfoils
  • field trips to military bases to see some of the most advanced aircraft in the world
  • understanding aviation charts
  • weather 
  • flight planning
  • flying a full-motion simulator 
  • propulsion systems
  • aviation navigational aids
  • proper communication skills
  • flight time in an actual airplane with an FAA certified flight instructor
 

EDUCATIONAL TRAINING DEVICES IN THE AVIATION PROGRAM

Redbird Jay Velocity Basic Aviation Training Device   The desktop Redbird Jay Velocity Flight Training Device (FTD) is the latest generation of an introductory flight training device. This a cost-effective and very effective entry-level teaching tool that can accurately replicate the airplane movement relative to control inputs made by the student to maximize student learning.   Redbird FMX Full Motion Simulator (FMX)   The FMX is “state-of-the-art” FAA-approved device that can be used to conduct all phases of flight training. It accurately replicates the 3 axis motions of flight; yaw, pitch, and roll. Small electric motors, computer hardware/software and eight screens combine to create 180 degrees of realistic outside visual references including airports and terrain. This simulator is an example of a sophisticated robotic device. Exposing the students to the aerodynamics of flight, thinking in a 3-D environment, and the function of the flight controls through the FMX has proven to be extremely successful and a phenomenal teaching tool.
