About This Activity

After learning about aerodynamics, wing plan forms, airfoils, balance and flight controls, each student will construct a custom giant glider (4ft wingspan) from 1⁄4” foam board, balsa and glue. Stock designs are available, but creativity is encouraged, and each student can create a craft of his or her own design. Our instructor, Keith Hollifield, has successfully built and flown hundreds of aircraft, and he stands ready to assist students who want to venture outside the box. These creations will be launched using our high-tension accelerator to put some serious air under their wings. Students will use their crafts to engage in a series of challenges including flight distance, time of flight, payload capability and precision landing tasks with an award given for the best overall performance. This is precision work. Students should be prepared to us discipline, focus and patience to complete this course. Everyone keeps the aircrafts they create in this course, and each glider could be later adapted to radio control for use at home or elsewhere.
