The Wolf Aviation Fund has awarded a grant to Wings Over Kansas, a website located at WingsOverKansas.com, for developing Aviation Education Pioneer lesson plans to help students and teachers explore aviation and aerospace in the classroom.
The lesson plans, added monthly, cover the subjects of history, language arts and technology. Each lesson plan includes learning objectives, education standards, procedures and suggestions for extension of the lessons.
The website also adds new content weekly from aviation industry sources, authors and historians, including photos, pioneer profiles, information on careers and more.
The creator of WingsOverKansas.com, Carl Chance, is a former news consultant/correspondent and producer for Wingspan Air & Space Channel on national cable and satellite television. His purpose was to create a one-of-a-kind website, celebrating Wichita, the “Air Capital of the World.”
Since its creation more than seven years ago, the website has been recognized as one of the top aviation websites. It attracts more than 35,500 visitors every month from more than 145 countries around the world.
