Participation in Wright Flight requires each student agree to do the following:
• Make a contract with their teacher to reach a specific academic goal
• Remain drug and alcohol free during the entirety of the program
• Complete a course in aviation history, including passing a test
If the student meets their goal and passes the curriculum, they are rewarded with a Flyday. We offer
three different programs:
❝History of Aviation❞
The History of Aviation curriculum starts with the first flight by the Wright Brothers and ends with the
Space Shuttle program.
Because so many students wanted to participate a second year, we developed the Flight Voyager
Program. Whereas the History of Aviation program gives an overview of the major milestones in
aviation, the Flight Voyager Program focuses on aviation pioneers as: the Wright Brothers, Charles
Lindberg and Amelia Earhart. Flight Voyager concludes with “last first in aviation” – the flight of the
Voyager by Dick Rutan and Geanna Yeager. Theirs was the first plane to fly non-stop around the
world without refueling. It’s in tribute to this accomplishment that our Flight Voyager Program was
named. After learning about these feats, the students are introduced to basic aviation and navigational
skills. They will learn how to plot and plan their own flight on an aeronautical chart which, upon
successful completion of the program, the student will use to navigate during their Flyday.
For the younger students who are interested in Wright Flight, we offer the Minuteman Program. Here,
the students earn the right to tour the Air National Guard and fly a flight simulator.
