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 it is okay to follow the wrong path—and even make mistakes—when learning new things. Every experience allows the student to ask better questions and ultimately discover the answers they seek.
