Find out what it takes to wear the stripes of a professional aviator in an adventure in modern commercial air travel! Follow in the footsteps of a student pilot and use aeronautical charts and tools to plan safe missions. Check out in the cockpit of an actual Boeing jet transport and construct a model of a widebodied airliner, and then step into the flight simulators to take on the challenge of flying a range of commercial aircraft, from the historic Ford Tri-Motor and Douglas DC-3 to the modern Boeing 777.

Launch an adventure to the ends of the world! Discover the role aviation has played in the exploration of the far polar regions. Investigate the impact high latitudes and freezing temperatures have on aircraft and navigation, and learn the unique procedures required to fly safely in foreboding terrain. Build polar aircraft models, create synthetic snow for aircraft system tests, and fly flight simulations to Alaskan and Antarctic research bases in an amazing wintertime adventure in aviation.
