Take Flight

Join uniquely-animated brothers Wilbur and Orville Wright for a full-throttle adventure through the history and into the future of aeronautics!

Learn about the four forces of flight — lift, weight, thrust and drag — with demonstrations by the Wright brothers and share observations and discoveries with Leonardo da Vinci as he creates his “flying machine.”

Along the way, you’ll meet Bessie Coleman, the first woman of African American and Native American descent to earn an aviation pilot’s license; break the sound barrier with Chuck Yeager; and take an exhilarating flight across the Atlantic Ocean with Amelia Earhart.

Will you become a famous aviator? “Take Flight” could be your first step!
