Grade 6 Theory of Flight

Through this program students will learn about the science of flight through live demonstrations, presentations, and a guided tour of the museum by our Education Instructors.

Key Concepts

  • Forces of Flight
  • Aircraft Parts
  • Flight Controls
  • Aviation History

We are pleased to announce the addition of half-day programs to our Theory of Flight roster.  Half-day programs run from 9:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m.  The full-day program runs from 9:15 a.m. to 2:15 p.m., with a 30-minute lunch break.  If you will arrive late or depart early due to bus schedules or early dismissal, please let us know in advance.

We can accommodate one class per program, up to a maximum of 32 students.  For the safety of our visitors and artifacts, we require a minimum of one adult supervisor for every five students.  Arriving to your program without adequate supervision will forfeit both the deposit and program.

The cost is $5.00 per student (plus GST) for half-day programs and $10.00 per student (plus GST) for full-day programs.  Adult supervisors are free of charge.  Unless other arrangements are made, we will automatically invoice the school.

 

Booking Your Program

Programs run from September to June.  We start accepting new program requests for the 2017-2018 school year on August 28, 2017.  Bookings will be confirmed after payment of the booking deposit is received.  Deposits are $50 for half-day programs and $100 for full-day programs.  All bookings are made on a first-come, first-served basis, with March to June filling up quickly – so submit your request early to avoid disappointment.
