The Omaha Composite Squadron held its monthly Aerospace Education evening on March 13. OCS Aerospace Education Officer, 2dLt Kirk Rasmussen, led the evening by demonstrating the basics of RC aircraft operation, required equipment, and the theory of flight behind each type of craft that was being demonstrated to the cadets.
The cadets were able to see first-hand, the new technologies that are being introduced into the RC world, such as the new FPV (First Person View) miniature cameras which allow the user (pilot) to fly the aircraft, while wearing a set of goggles that display the path of the aircraft across the air as transmitted by the FPV camera mounted on the aircraft itself.
The Omaha Composite squadron plans to expand the Aerospace Education program over the next few months to include some exciting, never before seen activities at the squadron level. More details will be forthcoming as we work on securing the equipment and manage the logistics of these activities. Stay tuned!
