Trail Life USA Troop 011 to Visit Shawnee Airport
Trail Life USA is a faith-based, non-aligned Scouting organization focused on providing youth both mentorship and character development through camping and interacting with the community.
Troop 011 is one of two troops located in Edmond, OK. The Trailmen will be camping out at the Shawnee Regional Airport November 19-20, 2022, and working toward earning their Aviation badges.
To earn the Aviation badge Trailmen must be able to describe: the basic principles and physics associated with both powered and unpowered flight, basic components of different aircraft and their powerplants, design differences and their limitations and advantages and different jobs within the industry. Trailmen will have the opportunity to complete a preflight on an aircraft, identify key components, complete multiple safety checklists, and go through the process of filing a flight plan. They will finish their day visiting the aviation museum within the Shawnee Regional Airport and receive a presentation from the Airport manager, Mrs. Bonnie Wilson, on airfield operations and management.
