What's Included

Young aviation enthusiasts try their hand at learning about and practicing the principles of flight. Join us as we pilot our own general aviation and commercial aircraft through the use of a flight simulator used to teach actual pilots how to fly. Also in this course, aviators will learn about airport operations and how to communicate with air traffic control. We will spend several sessions studying the history of influential aviators and their impact on the history of aviation. Additional activities will make use of the latest in aviation apps as we hone our skills together and take flight. Instructor: Erik Landgren

About This Organizer

For over 130 years the Ethical Culture Fieldston School has been committed to excellence in education as it seeks to develop the intellectual, artistic and moral potential of its students. ECFS serves approximately 1,700 students and 325 faculty and staff in our four divisions. Ethical Culture, Fieldston Lower, Fieldston Middle, and Fieldston upper. Ethical Culture is located in midtown Manhattan on Central Park West, in a six-story, turn-of-the-century school building; the other divisions share an 18-acre campus in the Riverdale Section of the Bronx.

Through an academic program that is demanding, rigorous, and through, we encrouage our students to challenge themselves in innovative ways, so they can reach their highest potential in mind, body, and spirit. We approach education in an interdisciplinary, experiential, and colaborative way, helping our students develop a lifelong passion for learning and understanding of its relevance beyond the classroom. As ethical learning provides the foundation of all that we do, we emphasize our students' moral development, and guide them towards service and social justice. The admirable successes of our graduates in a wide range of fields - from the arts to the sciences, from business to public service - and their contribution to society, attest to the promise of ECFS realized.
