Visit How Things Fly this summer

How Things Fly… Experience the Adventure

HTF Logo

How Things Fly… Experience the Adventure entertains, challenges and educates visitors of all ages! Visit the four zones of How Things Fly: Aerodynamics, Propulsion, Meteorology and Air Traffic Control—each giving an insight into the wonder of flight.

Aerodynamics:  

Have you ever wondered how a bird flies in the sky? Or what it was like during the Wright brothers’ very first powered flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903? This fun zone is filled with action-packed simulators that answer those questions and many more! Experience a flight with today’s modern squirrel suit jumpers as they soar around a mountain. Learn how to fly a helicopter and experience a real wind tunnel with your own set of wings.

 

Propulsion

See real, historic & modern day engines in operation! Also enjoy a series of non-operating engines such as the mammoth 28 cylinder Pratt and Whitney 4360. Enter a special listening dome that plays the actual sounds of several engines as they fly overhead.

 

Meteorology

Explore the effects of weather on aircraft and flight planning. View a weather balloon with “radiosonde,” a functioning weather station, videos of weather patterns and phenomena that affect the safety of flight, live NEXRAD radar, and create your own lighting storm in a Van de Graaff machine!

 

Air Traffic Control

Enter the world of air traffic control and witness the importance it plays in aviation safety. View live radar and air traffic control communications at Atlanta’s Hartsfield Airport and even our own Lindbergh Field! Try to control the aircraft on your own at the training station.
