Aviation Challenge, May 3
Good evening from Aviation Challenge!  The hashtag #aviationchallengeaccepted2K15 is very appropriate.  The seventh and eighth graders are certainly taking this challenge head on.  They have already completed many team building activities and have received their call signs for the week.  Tonight, they will begin their introduction to flight and patrolling.

The day began early at Aviation Challenge with girls of the Hornets getting their rooms ready for the daily inspection.  After breakfast, they loaded up on the transport truck to begin flight training.  They have learned about take off, landing, navigation, and air and ground weaponry.  The teams have also learned about land survival and had am introduction to drill and ceremony.  They are very good at standing at parade rest and answering their leader with the appropriate response.  Tonight, they will learn about flight physiology and orienteering.
