Learn all about aerodynamics and how airplanes stay in the air with this activity book that comes with five models you can make. The text covers key aviation inventions, flight forces (drag, thrust, etc.) and other facets of flying.

The five models include a galactic glider, a deadly dart, a whirlybird helicopter, a single-prop Starlite and a twin-prop SuperStar. Children eight and older will be able to fashion the provided parts into some really fabulous flying machines. There's also a logbook where you can keep track of your flights just like a real pilot.

For young aircraft engineers and would-be pilots, here's the ideal interactive guide to the fascinating science of flight.
