Please fasten your seat belts as we take off into a new learning adventure! Tilden’s fifth-graders attended ground school, plotted their flights, conducted their preflight checks (with a real Cirrus SR20 airplane), and flew their airplanes (simulators), landing safely (mostly). And that was just the morning! The afternoon was a little less intense, with a tour of the museum, and a movie on the wonder of flight and its impact on our lives. Airplanes never seem to lose our fascination, but these kiddos will now view them with a deeper respect for the science that enables flight.
