engineering careers  Are you ready for the challenge

The beautifully illustrated Pilot’s Academy is packed full of activities, fun facts and ideas to get your kids interested in flight.

Written by Steve Martin, a former English teacher, and illustrated by Lucy Banaji a Fine Art graduate and a self-taught the book will walk you through a flight, from take-off to navigation and landing.

The book is well laid-out. The activities are informative and interactive and promise not just to keep children entertained but to develop their skills and understanding. This isn’t just a book for anyone interested in becoming a pilot though; Steve and Lucy show off how aircraft are engineered.

Readers are tasked with creating a roto-copter or a string radio. Asked how much fuel they need to pilot a plane around the United States. We recommend that after each section is done you ‘graduate’ to the next task by rewarding yourself with a sticker.
