Aviation Resources for kids. Parents and Teachers

When we are young, airplanes are one of the first toys we play with. Children instinctively know what they represent. They immediately feel the excitement. “How do planes fly?” is always the first question.

Learning about aviation from an early age is important to understand our challenges as we evolve. Whether manned or unmanned or using fuel or Hydrogen or electricity. Right now, Aviation needs bright young minds to help us on the journey ahead.

Aviation has come a long way and it continues to provide a way for humans to explore the world and to meet friends and family. It is also a wonderful place to work and learn.

In this section we have curated many resources from around the web. Each section contains interesting videos, activities, or other places on the web to visit.

It’s important for everyone, but mostly children, to learn how we use energy to produce and operate airplanes. To learn where that energy comes from and how to make that sustainable.

What’s most exciting however, is our future.  And we need young minds to help us realize it…

  • Royal Aeronautical Society:  home of the national aerospace library and other tremendous resources and content for aerospace engineering and maintenance
  • Eurocontrol: not just Air Traffic control, here you will find books, the excellent Skyway magazine and think papers on all this aviation. 
  • Skybrary: probably the best source of airplane technical and aerodynamic designs and theory on the internet. Should be your first port of call if you seek the aviation fundamentals.
