Flight Academy Aviation In Residence (AIR) Experience on board the USS Yorktown

Excitement and education through competition.

Combining immersive virtual reality and game play with innovative real-world missions, Patriots Point is launching the Flight Academy Aviation in Residence (AIR) experience on the USS YORKTOWN. AIR engages and inspires a new generation, and supports education in our communities. Using standards-based curricula, AIR teaches Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) skills in groundbreaking and entertaining ways. It starts with vital missions designed with TEQGames at Universal Studios, leaders in higher education and the National Flight Academy. Student teams compete in aviation-inspired missions, from disaster response to rescue. Participants use geometry, geography, and trigonometry in realistic experiences — just as actual pilots do — in simulators and other high-tech settings. Using leadership and communication skills, students work together and solve problems at a rapid pace. And the best part? It all happens aboard the historic aircraft carrier USS YORKTOWN on Charleston Harbor. From purposeful game playing to the thrill of flight, AIR inspires students. In time, this learning experience will extend into other corners of a student’s world. The Flight Academy can be used as stand-alone semester programs and topped off with a visit to AIR on the USS YORKTOWN; and will promote excitement and education in the classroom, at home on the Web and in the community.
