SOONER FLIGHT ACADEMY LAUNCHES VIRTUAL PROGRAMS

Sooner Fllight Academy is going virtual during these extraordinary times with the launch of our new, online Virtual Programs!

Each of our Virtual Programs offers live instructor interaction and activity supplies delivered to participants. We’ve created a wide variety of hands-on programs designed to let students ages 6 to 18 discover the scientific principles that make things work and introducing kids to the world of flying with Bernoulli’s Principle, the four forces of flight and Newton’s Laws of Motion.

Each six-week virtual program will run from October 12 - November 20.

Registration opens on September 15. Registration for each program level will remain open until October 5, or until the session capacity of 36 participants is reached for that level.

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.
