The Young Aviators are part of the Mile High EAA Chapter 43, a non-profit organization.

Scratch Built Gliders & RC aircraft

The 2021-2022 YA year was spent crawling out of pandemic restrictions and focused on building and flying gliders and RC aircraft.

We learned about aircraft flight dynamics through test flying the aircraft. We found that flying RC aircraft is a bit of a steep learning curve and crashed many planes along the way!

Nevertheless, using the RC flight simulate RealFlight we learned to fly them!

In addition to RC flights, we learned about flying full sized aircraft through Young Eagles flights as well as a virtual reality headset augmented Microsoft Flight Simulator.
