Mr Westerns Flight school

Today we had our first experience at Mr Westerns flight school. Using our Ipads and a homemade flight simulator we practised flying a Cesna plane. Needless to say there were quite a few crashes to start with as the the children wrestled with the controls. By the end we had discovered that the flaps need to be up after take-off to help control the plane. Hopefully the children will be able to qualify for their flying license soon and we can try to fly some bigger, faster planes. We had great fun exploring speed, aerodynamics and developing our team working skills.

    Nice game I have it on my iPod Touch and it’s really fun to play, especially the Apollo 11 simulator, it’s really realistic and Tristan even keeps harrasing me because he wants a turn!

    WOW! I want one. They look so cool the Ipad’s.

    I think would make the Ipad’s look more intresting would be if you make the cases more colourful.

      Thanks mrs S I’m so glad you like it. Hoping to get the children to add some more bits soon. I think they are great for keeping in touch with our amazing class. Would love to have all the children start their own blog!
