Future Teacher looking for interest for flight unit
Well I'm in the last stages of finishing my teaching degree and am putting together a general technology class with a flight component. For my research on this I would like to get the input of children between ages 13-16, and answer the following questions:
Would you be interested in a unit on flight in a general technology class
Would you be interested in this more than just the basics (career possibility)?
Would you be able willing to pay up to $200 to be able to take home a basic flying model aircraft?
What would you want to see covered in the course about flight?
What types of activities would you be interested in doing?
Would you want to build a trainer style flying model airplane?
Please post responses here. No names are required, but country and state/province would be appreciated. If you are a parent of children this age, please ask them as well, as more responses will help to validate this idea.
Thanks very much,
Mike Payne, University of British Columbia - Faculty of Education

Hi I'm Austin, I'm 16 and from Michigan.
-I would, but people that haven't done it may not.
-I would want to see how it works, but mostly techniques on getting a plane to fly.
-Activities: Flight sim (G3.5, FsOne, XPlane, MS Flight sim etc.), building a plane and flying it.
