QUIET FLIGHT – PHASE 1

Our next adventure takes us on a journey to make flight quiet, in a next-generation electric aircraft built by student innovators! We have embarked on a program that starts with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University designing and building a plane that will be used in tests performed with National Park Service noise experts starting in the Fall of 2015. The Museum of Flight in Seattle, WA is our mission control and will be bringing our story to millions of visitors and students through their educational partnerships.
