- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC): We will incorporate both STEM and NGLC in ground training, flight training, and in after school programs and flight camps.
- Entrepreneurship: Flight Club members will learn entrepreneurship through planning and conducting after school programs and summer camps. Flight Club members will be responsible for creating the programs, producing budgets, marketing the courses, and crafting
lesson plans. The members of Flight Club 502 will lead the programs they develop.
- Leadership and Decision Making skills: We use aviation lessons to teach practical living skills. We use flight planning to teach life planning, emergency procedures in the cockpit and look at emergencies they might face in life, such as drugs, and we teach situational awareness in the plane and how to apply situational awareness to life.
- Patriotism: Flight Club members are grateful for our freedom and respect each other’s differences.
Since our founding, we have grown to over 200 different youth members ages 13-20, Junior Flight Club members ages 8-12 and adult volunteer members who are all fully dedicated to our mission and to helping this organization reach its maximum potential.
