Ailerons, elevators, empennage, rudder – all are terms pertaining to aircraft, but could you or your students explain their functions? Students will gain insight into aircraft flight as they design and test their own airfoils. The construction of their own control-line flying model airplanes will further enhance their understanding of airplane structures. This pack is truly hands on, and each student will have a real flying model airplane upon completion of the activity.
Top-grade balsa wood, adhesives, and all other materials needed for the wing design and flying model airplane activities are included. To pilot the student through the processes (pun intended), a copy of Steve Bachmeyer’s book, Aircraft Structures, is included. Includes enough materials for 25 students. Requires hobby knife, sold separately.
