Brochure: Seven Keys To Transformed Kids
It’s Not Just About Flying… it’s about giving them wings and helping them to touch the sky!
Download Program Overview
Successful Aviation Events conducted at Rice University, University of Houston Downtown, Milby High School, Deady Middle School, Looscan Elementary School, Wedgewood Elementary School, Texas City Children’s Safety Fair, Seabrook Girl Scouts, Texas City ‘Touch-A-Truck’ and others.
Aviation has the remarkable ability to excite students about learning new concepts. Kids who participate in innovative STEM programs tend to improve their academic performance, are less likely to get in trouble, are more likely to graduate high school and are more likely to pursue higher learning after graduation. Through the introduction of technology, we create an instant thirst for higher learning. By erasing the lines between work and play, Math and Science become pieces of an interesting puzzle. For more than 30 years, Character Camp has been “Building Better Kids” through innovative partnerships with schools, churches, youth organizations and Corporate America.
Our Aviation program employs every tool, from the construction and analysis of model airplanes to the use of Lockheed Martin Simulators to introduce students to flight mechanics and physics in a very non-threatening way. Our self-contained Mobile Aviation Lab seats 20 students at 10 simulator stations (pilot and co-pilot). As students develop a love for aviation they often show dramatic improvements in math and science as they apply these principles to the exciting world of aviation. This course explores the history of flight, unveils the mysteries of aircraft development and the fundamentals of aerodynamics. Students explore the evolution of aircraft and their designs, engines, instruments, and aircraft systems. Students will also learn about airport systems, airspace, air navigation, radio communication procedures, and federal aviation regulations. Aircraft maintenance, meteorology, air traffic control, and a variety of aviation and aerospace career options are also discussed. The course includes significant historical events in aviation and aerospace development as well as a look at modern technology and industry progress.
The use of radio controlled models introduces students to aircraft anatomy and aircraft control. Students gain a deeper understanding of flight dynamics and further expand their aviation vocabulary in an interesting setting. Interacting with radio controlled planes allows students to develop an appreciation for how atmospheric conditions impact the world of aviation. They will learn in fun and practical ways the effects of physical properties such as thrust, lift, drag, weight, elevation, attitude, trim and etcetera.
