Aviation Merit Badge

We had a great time at the Washington State Patrol’s Aviation Detachment August 30, working on the Aviation MB. Scouts learned elements of the pre-flight checklist, and then actually performed pre-flight inspections on one of the aircraft. After developing and filing a flight plan, participants took turns “flying” over Olympia using a flight simulator program. Our warmest thanks and deep appreciation to the WSP officers and to Captain Mark Couey and Dennis Longnecker for facilitating this incredible learning opportunity.
