Does your club have a Flight Training Program in place? Here you will find a collection of Flight Training Manuals we've received from several clubs. These are a great resource for developing your own!
This page serves as a resource for our education outreach volunteers, as well as any model aviation educator that is seeking guidance. Here you will find ideas, activities, and suggestions on how to deliver and promote our education outreach program at home, in the classroom, or out on the flying field!
Sir George Cayley, often called the Father of Aeronautics, designed a helicopter powered by a bow-string mechanism with feather blades (similar to the reproduction shown here). Later, he experimented by flying a model with multiple adjustable surfaces, allowing him to understand how every change affected the model’s flight. This model is a ½ scale replica of his original 1804 model. Cayley used the data from these experiments to publish his On Aerial Navigation in 1809.
