Miracle on the Hudson

arrow

Program description

While learning about the events of US Airways Flight 1549- The Miracle on the Hudson, students will be introduced to advancements and methods that have been developed in the fields of transportation, design, and communications, which ultimately allowed for the safe rescue of all passengers on this historic flight. A focus on STEM and aviation careers is also part of this tour.

Year Round

Available times:

 Monday-Friday 10-2pm

Location(s):

 Carolinas Aviation Museum OR this program is available to be brought to your school.

Fees / Ticketing:

$9.50 per person

Outreach Pricing:
The first one hour class that a school books will cost $150 and additional classes will cost $125 with max class size of 25 students.
If a school would like an assembly the cost is $250 for the first assembly and then $125 for additional assemblies with a max of 3 assemblies a day.
If a group would like a festival/interactive display booth/table the cost for the first hour is $250 with a max of $500 and the max number of hours is 6
If the school is within a 25 mile radius we will not charge a mileage fee, however if the school is outside the radius they will have to pay .55 cents a mile and that is a round-trip charge (if school is 30 miles out the cost would be (60 miles*.55 = $33).

 

EDUCATION STANDARDS

NC Standard Course of Study:

 6-RI-7 (Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue.) RL is reading Literature, while RI is reading informational text.
