Cadets Learn To Fly By Remote Control

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.
