YOUNG AVIATORS

For ages 6-8

Our programme designed for kids aged 6-8.

 

We use real world aviation related examples to educate children through STEM. Our instructors have many years and thousands of flying hours behind them and with their industry knowledge and expertise we make learning fun and relevant.

 

Topics covered include:

  • Aerodynamics

  • How aircraft fly

  • Introduction to aircraft systems

  • Day in the life of a pilot

 

For young aviators we offer a special chance to take to the virtual skies in a realistic simulator of the modern Airbus A321neo jet. Brand new,  state of the art simulator with realism so advanced it is used by real world pilots for training.

Our simulator is located in Lai Chi Kok

Who are the instructors?

All our instructors are real world airline pilots with at least 10 years of flying experience flying all over the world. Being airline pilots means that they have passed numerous background checks and are passionate about aviation and sharing that with the youth of today

What will I learn?

Our 4 classroom sessions will include practical experiments and activities designed to promote learning. For example, we learn about aerodynamics by having a paper aeroplane competition! We also look at aircraft systems such as electrics, how circuits work and learn basic piloting techniques using Microsoft Flight Simulator

What simulator do you use?

The simulator is based on an Airbus A321neo aircraft. A variant of the A320 family, one of the most popular aircraft flying today. Used by airlines around the world for short, medium and long haul routes. The simulator mimics the real aircraft including failures and abnormal situations and is often used by current pilots as a training device
