Do you have a child who is fascinated by airplanes and flight? Or maybe they are interested in aviation history. You will definitely want to learn more about an online resource that members of the Homeschool Review Crew have been reviewing from Doctor Aviation. These online training videos cover a wide variety of topics associated with aviation and aircrafts.
Doctor Aviation is a former member of the Air Force including serving as both Command Pilot and instructor pilot. He was even a research pilot during the testing of the Strategic Defense Initiative (The Star Wars Program.) Doctor Aviation also taught aviation at the United States Air Force Academy and authored a book on CFIT, published by McGraw Hill.
Now a college professor, Doctor Aviation wanted to make a program available to learners everywhere and of every age to learn about the world of aviation. This led to the creation of the Doctor Aviation Educational Website.
