The Merit Badge University for the Boy Scouts at Texas A&M University was a great success and we had a lot of fun with those getting their aviation badge! They were able to learn about aviation fundamentals, tour a wind tunnel, do a pre-flight check of a plane, tour a control tower, fly a plan in a simulator, and make some awesome foam plane of their own!

Big thank you’s go out to the Easterwood Control Tower, Brazos Valley Flight Services, Vehicle Systems & Control Laboratory, and the Texas A&M Aerospace Department, and our volunteers for helping make this a reality.

Please enjoy some pictures from the day. If you would like to download copies of these photos, please visit the Aviation Badge Flickr page or search for TAMU MBU Aviation Badge on Flickr.
