August 19, 2023 | Gunston Hall
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Featuring: Viper Rocket Launch



The Colonial District is pleased to welcome units to our Flight School. 

Scouts will earn Aviation and Space Exploration merit badges, as well as get to launch rockets.

Aviation Merit Badge Prerequisite

      To begin (before the class), scouts should watch these two short videos that help explain
       key concepts of flying.  

      Please review and complete requirement #4 which is the ONLY pre-requisite for the Aviation merit badge.
      It requires you to do ONE of the three:

  • Visit an airport. After the visit, report on how the facilities are used, how runways are numbered, and how runways are determined to be 'active.'
  • Visit a Federal Aviation Administration facility - a control tower, terminal radar control facility, air route traffic control center, or Flight Standards District Office. (Phone directory listings are under U.S. Government Offices, Transportation Department, Federal Aviation Administration. Call in advance.) Report on the operation and your impressions of the facility.
  • Visit an aviation museum or attend an air show. Report on your impressions of the museum or show.

Our Flight School is a chance for scouts to understand, appreciate, and be excited about the amazing machines that have transformed our world. 

The Flight School registration fee is $31.
