“The Wright brothers hand built their own propellers! Since boats used propellers that worked, they figured it might work for airplanes also, and they were right! Not only does an airplane propeller in the air act the same as a propeller in the water, but they also figured out that the propeller was actually a wing in itself, and would behave like one!”

1) Takeoff straight out runway 1

2) Climb and maintain “1000” feet

“Good visual reference points are those mines and quarries scattered all over the place! There's a pickax symbol right along the western shore of the Santa Fe Flood Control Basin on your terminal chart. You see them usually as blotches of brown, sort of scarring the terrain.”

3) Who was the first person to fly a powered aircraft in Great Britain?
