Kansas Aviation Museum to open learning center
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Aviation Museum in Wichita is planning to open an interactive learning center that features flight simulators, a weather station and educational stations.
The new center is expected to open March 16. It is sponsored by Boeing with support from the Lattner Family Foundation and the city of Wichita.
Features will include a mock control tower with a radio connection to a Cessna 210 simulator. Visitors can use a computer-aided system to design an air foil and test it in a virtual wind tunnel. They can also build the foil and test it in a real wind tunnel.
Over the next year, the museum plans to start a new club for children, a merit badge program, home school programs and other activities.
