Model planes are sized just right for little hands to learn about flight. Our friendly educator will encourage your preschoolers to use their senses of sight, touch, hearing and smell and to explore flying models through fine and gross motor activities. Each child will have the opportunity to construct and fly their own simplified FPG-9 glider that may be taken home. Time: approximately 45 minutes
There are two options for participating in the "Fun with Flight" preschool experience!
On-site at the National Model Aviation Museum
Give your preschoolers a social experience outside of their everyday environment with a trip to the National Model Aviation Museum. Imagine their wonder at being surrounded by model airplanes in all colors of the rainbow! If you would like to bring snacks for your class, you can enjoy them after your program in our multipurpose room for no additional charge.
Travel to your classroom

We know it can be difficult to organize transportation and chaperones for a field trip, so let us come to you! Our educator will bring everything needed for the program to your classroom.
Regardless of location, programs require a minimum payment of $30 (the cost for 10 participants).
