Ground schools may be for pilots, but all interested aviation enthusiasts are invited. Its not very often you get a chance to view, listen and learn about a vintage aircraft like the DHC 1B-2-S5 Chipmunk.
The Chipmunk replaced the Tiger Moth bi-plane in the early 1950’s. The DHC-1 designation indicates the Chipmunk was the first original design of the Canadian firm, which eventually was allowed to develop its bush plane, the DHC-2 Beaver. Designed originally as a military trainer, many Chipmunks after military use were sold to civilians, either to private owners, flight schools or to companies, where they were typically used for a variety of purposes.
Qualified instructor facilitates the course. A flight manual is available to purchase ($50) at the museum for participants who want or require one. ($25 shipping & handling fee applies if material is requested be mailed).
Coffee & lunch is included.
