CAP celebrates The Wright Brothers Day at Carnegie Science Center

Science center's flight simulators turn public into 'Top Gun' pilots

By Rick Wills, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Sunday, December 18, 2011

 
Jake Kern of Oakdale was thrilled to be flying -- albeit in a simulated Cessna 182.
"It's great. You get fly the airplane. Then you get to crash it," said Jake, 8, who used the simulators on display on Saturday in the Carnegie Science Center.
The Civil Air Patrol sponsored the event in celebration of its 70th anniversary and of the 108th anniversary of the Wright Brothers' first flight on Dec. 17, 1903.
By early afternoon, about 200 people had conducted simulated flights.
"It was a lot of fun. I've always wanted to fly. I probably just watched "Top Gun" too many times," said Matt Stewart of Pine in reference to the Tom Cruise movie about a naval aviator.
Maj. Kevin Berry, commander of the Civil Air Patrol's Squadron 712 in Butler, oversaw construction of the flight simulators to advance the unit's aerospace education mission.
