From Archytas building a bird shaped model propelled by steam in Ancient Greece to Chinese generals flying kites over enemy territory to calculate the length of tunnel required to enter the region in 200BC.
For ages, humankind has been mesmerized with the notion of flight. If the purpose of education is the mental and spiritual growth of the individual, flying presents an unique opportunity. Consider viewing a sunrise from 9,000 feet ... or seeing humpback whales swimming with their young. How can the military leader, the captain of commerce, the scientist, the teacher be truly effective without insight into the Twentieth Century's greatest achievement?
Learning to fly is a real-life education. It develops and continually hones decision making skills. It teaches awareness of the physical world ... its dangers and its beauties.
And learning to fly enhances the maturation and seasoning process.
