Science of Flight
iPad Application

Carolina’s Aviation Museum,
Charlotte, North Carolina

Carolinas Aviation Museum houses an extensive collection of historical aircraft covering the history of civil, military and commercial aviation.

Freeman Ryan Design was engaged to design an interactive, educational app as part of the Science of Flight exhibit in the museum. The app uses Cessna model 170 aircraft to teach concepts essential to the understanding of flight such as lift and drag.

FRD designed the graphic layout and developed the interaction design of the app. An educational and entertaining ‘Flight Training 101’, the app uses interactive techniques to take the user through the science of flight, the controls of an aircraft and conducting a pre-flight check.

Application engineering: Skookum Digital, based in North Carolina
