The team is divided into sub-teams using detailed blueprints and recyclable materials to build a 1/4 scale F18 jet. Once completed, decorate the plane with decals and decide on the pilot and engine. The teams then work together on the final air show display. After lining up on the runway, teams must combine speed, precision, and communication skills to fly the plane and choreograph the action. This incredible shared experience is even more memorable when a drone captures the flyby and edits it into a Highway to Danger Zone.
Flat Out Top Gun requires teamwork, ingenuity, and good communication skills to transform a flat pack of materials into a plane. Knowing the final destination is very important when building an aircraft. The assignment of tasks to sub-teams and effective inter-team communication leads to a clear understanding of how components in one group fit into the other and the overall project to a well-designed aircraft. Effective strategic planning between teams, accurate role assignments, and effective teamwork lead to success at an air show where planes fly together.
