Science of flight

After the last year's successful launch of the moon camp challange this next series of videos was created in collaboration with Airbus subject matter experts in Commercial Aircraft and Helicopters, who ensured the videos were scientifically accurate without using over-complicated terms. The videos cover the fundamentals of flight as well as more technical aspects, such as landing, turning an coping with turbulence. They show the differences in the science of aircraft and helicopters, while also looking to the cleaner, greener future of flight.

The videos complement the Foundation’s current Flying Challenge and Little Engineer youth development programmes that are bringing science, technology, engineering and maths-based subjects and careers to life for a new generation. The content also underlines Airbus’ wider commitment to supporting goal number four of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, which targets quality education for all.
