Mt Airy Squadron gathered on the second Thursday of January, 2017 for the usual inspections, drill, flight time, and aerospace. Senior member Buchheit presented engineering and aerospace principles in a lesson that kept everyone engaged while learning .
The cadets participated in a class where they performed hands on experiments. The topics for the class included the physics and principals of velocity, speed, acceleration, and air resistance. Cadets encounter all these principals when they fly CAP aircraft during orientation flights. By learning these principals before the cadets take the controls of an aircraft, they become better pilots.
The squadron is at 70% participation on O Flights (orientation flights); we are currently leading within the Maryland Wing. Plenty of flights are available, contact Lt Col Buzzard if you are interested. Thank you Mr. Buchheit for providing a very positive experience for everyone involved and C/SMSgt R. Buzzard for taking photos of the event.
