ADVANCED: PREFLIGHT

In this session, participants will explore more deeply the physics, meteorology, philosophy, planning, and preparation that must go into each flight. While the introductory preflight inspection focuses primarily on the airplane and its systems, this session emphasizes a broader view of all the factors that make up a successful, safe flight.

INTRODUCTORY: AERODYNAMICS

In this session, participants will learn about the forces that act on an airplane in flight, as well as the primary control surfaces of a plane.
