On Saturday, August 5th, ten of our Cadets spent the day flying – but with their feet firmly on the ground.

The cadets participated in a remote control (R/C) aircraft Flying Day that was organized in collaboration with the Texoma R/C Modelers Club in Sherman. The activity, which took place at the club’s flying field west of Sherman, capped off a project in CAP’s Aerospace Education program in which the cadets spent several weeks learning how R/C aircraft are constructed and how they operate, and using computer simulators to practice flying. Their studies also included learning about aerodynamics, aircraft design, power, and guidance.

Model building and flying enhance classroom training

On April 23rd, our Cadets participated in a model rocket launching activity at North Texas Regional Airport in the second phase of CAP’s three-level Model Rocketry Program. The activity provided the cadets with a hands-on demonstration of scientific principles, and the opportunity to have a little fun at the same time.
