Welcome to Flying'sCool! ::
Our mission is to introduce children and adults to flying using flight simulation and other innovative multi-media tools through classes with hands on experience, educational enrichment programs for schools, and eLearning products for use at home. Our goal is to use the natural fascination people have for flying as a tool for education and entertainment.

"Education is not the filling of a bucket,
      but the lighting of a fire."
- W.B. Yeats

Flying'sCool! is offering classes May 17 - June 18 at the Roudenbush Community Center in Westford, MA. Class size is limited so register today!

Another Great Young Eagles rally!
Another great Young Eagles rally today at Minute Man Airport in Stow, MA. A bunch of Kids 8-17 got to fly in a real airplane for FREE!

I'd like to thank everyone who came over to see what Flying'sCool! is all about. A bunch of kids got to see what it's like to fly around Minuteman airport before they got their flight in the real airplanes. The smiles on their faces were priceless. Even a Mom decided to try her hand at the simulator! So thanks again everyone, and don't hesitate to give me a call if you have any questions, whether they are about my classes or flight simulation in general.

You can get the same simulator we use!
Microsoft Flight Simulator X is the software we use in our classes. The latest version is the "Gold Edition". If you're looking to set up your own system, I set up to help you understand what you'll need.

If you already have FSX, I highly recommend getting the latest updates ( Servicepacks 1 & 2 are both required) over at FSInsider which will give you 20% to 100% improvement in performance.  I also recommend a minimum of 2GB of memory in your computer. If you have any questions, come ask at my forums.
