November 15, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Peek inside the flight training for the Civil Air Patrol, as the United States Air Force Auxiliary participates in a workshop taught by Brooklyn Aerodrome. The Cadets from New York City, Westchester and Long Island Squadron will attend a two-day R/C Flight Academy. In the classroom, Cadets will build and learn to maintain a large-scale model aircraft, and practice flying on a life-size simulator. In the field, Cadets will learn how to fly their aircraft and safely operate a flight line.

NYSCI visitors are invited to watch the flight practice, which will be held in the field behind the museum. Visitors can also take a turn on the life-size flight simulator.

Free with NYSCI admission.
