It’s Official! – New spring term Flying’sCool classes offered at Roudenbush Community Center, Westford, MA

Saturday classes have been changed. The Saturday Classes will now start on May 21, 2011.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to fly a plane?  Attend Flying’sCool! and see!

The Roudenbush Community center in Westford, MA is sponsoring Flying’sCool! classes May 17 – June 18 (See Schedule below).  You’ll experience the thrill of flight in the comfort of a classroom without your feet ever having to leave the ground.

Each student gets hands-on experience using a state of the art flight simulator with life-like controls, flying a variety of aircraft.  See what it’s like to take off, navigate to another airport and land,  and whatever you want to do in between.  While exploring the world, you’ll learn:

  • How planes fly and how to control them
  • How to navigate (in a realistic, recognizable environment, find your street!)
  • Basic Aerobatics
  • About weather and its affect on flying
  • An introduction to interacting with air traffic control
  • Multi-player functionality in Microsoft Flight Simulator
  • But mostly your job will be to have fun flying!

Each session consists of 5 1-hour classes, with 10 minutes of instruction, and the rest of the class with the students flying in the flight simulator*.

Class size is limited, so sign up today!

*Actual flight time per student will depend on the number of students in the class.  Each class has two simulators, and class size will typically be 4 – 6 students.  Students not flying will have other activities available while they wait.
