This program is intended to give the students a chance to acquire some solid flying skills in the simulators, as well as first hand familiarity with the features, handling and performance of various existing aircraft, all while having a hands-on time with flight simulators.
One part of the program loosely mimics real life training curricula, with the characteristic progression from aircraft with docile, easy handling, to increasingly demanding types with higher performance, and references to some of the differences of simulator flying as opposed to real life. Another part deals with aircraft, similar to those, that members of the society choose to design for IT FLIES. This will provide examples of how those aircraft behave, in situations from the competition testing program, and help us develop recommendations on how their own aircraft should be flown in those scenarios. While both parts are supposed to help with IT FLIES competition, hopefully, the newcomers and other members of the society will also find them useful and entertaining as a standalone project that is relevant to real world aviation.
