Take Flight!

Join uniquely-animated brothers Wilbur and Orville Wright for a full-throttle adventure through the history and into the future of aeronautics!

Learn about the four forces of flight-lift, weight, thrust and drag-with demonstrations by the Wright brothers. Share observations and discoveries with Leonardo da Vinci as he creates his “flying machine.”

Along the way, you will: meet Bessie Coleman, the first woman of African American and Native American descent to earn an aviation pilot’s license; break the sound barrier with Chuck Yeager; and take an exhilarating flight across the Atlantic Ocean with Amelia Earhart. Will you become a pilot? “Take Flight” could be your first step!

Recommended for ages 4 and up.
