FLIGHT TRAINING WITH MATH- SUMMER CLASS- $35

For ages 9-15 only

This is a classroom style learning environment with a few group activities for students who are ready for the next level of training. We will be using basic math skills and formulas to chart and plan a cross country flight. Using approved FAA sectionals (maps) and instruments, students will be identifying lines of latitude, longitude, nautical miles, calculating heights of topographical features and using aviation tools to measure and track ground speed, temperature conversion rates for all things related to aviation.

*Note: this one-day 2 hr. class differs from our monthly workshops and is currently only offered as a summer school option.

This is an introductory lesson to flight training.

Operating in the airport traffic pattern, you’ll have a bird’s eye glimpse of your surroundings while learning basic climbs, descents, and turns, then make your way to final approach for a landing.

What is a Flight Simulator?
A flight simulator is a computer device that electronically simulates and creates a flight training environment in the cockpit of various aircraft through the use of computers, screens and replicated flight control systems.
What type of Flight Simulator is used at Wings and Rotors Academy? We use FlyThisSim FTS TouchTrainer V2.71 Airplane Single & Multi Engine Land. It is an FAA qualified and approved FTS Touch Trainer device as an Basic Aviation Training Device (BATD) in accordance with Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) section 61.4 (c)

Do I need an instructor?
Because of the complex set-up, features, and liability involved in running a flight simulator, a FAA certified Flight Instructor is required for all "initial" training regardless of experience level and at the discretion of the instructor and owners alone.

Can I log my flight training in my pilot log?
Yes. Our FTS TouchTrainer is authorized for use in satisfying the following sections of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations parts 61 and 141.
61.51 (b)(3)
