SOONER FLIGHT ACADEMY LAUNCHES AUGMENTED REALITY APP

We are pleased to announce the launch of our Augmented Reality App. Using a smartphone or tablet, users can scan a flat surface, such as the floor of a large room or gym or the ground in a yard or park, and the app will “place” a life-size digital airplane into their environment. Users can then explore and interact with the aircraft, learn about the parts of the plane, and test their knowledge about airplane functionality. 

The app is free to download from iOS or Android app stores. Access to the augmented reality section of the app requires an access code that can be purchased for $2.99/device for 30 days of access. Group discounts for schools and other groups are available.

Purchase access codes HERE or send an email to flightcamp@ou.edu to inquire about purchasing codes in large quantities.

Sooner Flight Academy Programs

We give students in grades K-12 opportunities to imagine, explore and create, while developing a passion for learning and sparking a desire to pursue careers in these fields when they get older.

We use fun physics to introduce students to:

  • How things move by exploring Newton's Laws of Motion
  • How things get lift to fly by experiencing Bernoulli's Principle
  • How weather affects the planet and the pilot
  • Famous Aviators of History, including many Oklahomans
  • Space Exploration
  • and so much more!

Sooner Flight Academy programs help the student remember their childlike curiosity while exploring the world using the scientific method. Students learn that failure is part of learning—and that making mistakes is even necessary—when learning new things. Every experience allows the student to ask better questions and ultimately discover the answers they seek.
