What an awesome week!  June 10 – 14, 2019  

Thanks to the over 50 chapter volunteers, guest speakers, pilots with aircraft displays, donors, and reception participants!  And especially thanks for an attentive group of students and supportive parents!

Our 6th Double Eagle Aviation Academy (DEAA) offered another fun and challenging week at the airport!  Students ages 14 – 17, explored a future in aviation.

Double Eagle Aviation AcademyStudents learn to read weather reports, how to control pitch, roll, and yaw, the importance of balancing weight in the plane, to interpret the instrument “Six Pack”, how aluminum structures are designed to be strong, the legs of a traffic pattern and how to communicate at non-towered and towered airports. They rivet and roll aluminum to make part of an aileron, conduct an aircraft pre-flight inspection, visit a control tower, and plan a flight.
