Call them the "Young Eagles" or even the "Rocket Boys". This past summer has been "high" adventure for my guys...from a free flying lesson through the Young Eagle program, to the dynamics of backyard rocketry.
The boys have traveled to Toledo (OH), Lancaster (OH) and Muncie (IN) and have met a variety of enthusiasts of all ages.
They are now fully armed with their "Young Eagle" certificates, rockets in all shapes and sizes, RC planes and helicopters and not a few balsa wood models to construct. Looks like this year's science program will be rounded out with the "principles of aviation and aeronautical design and propulsion."
