Inspiring the Next Generation of Science and Technology Leaders

Florida middle schoolers had a chance to hear from the legendary Tuskegee Airmen and fly in Lockheed Martin Prepar3D during a February ceremony at the South Orlando YMCA Family Center. Supporting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, Lockheed Martin also presented $103,000 in contributions and grants to the YMCA and Oak Ridge High School at the event. Of that sum, $58,000 was directed to support one year of programming at the Lockheed Martin/YMCA Technology Center, the addition of the “Vision of Flight” Aviation Technology Program and the YMCA Teen Achievers engineering cluster. Oak Ridge High School received $45,000 in

A.C.E.S. Flight Simulation and Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D®

If you ask Mike Pohl at A.C.E.S. Flight Simulation if he thought it would be possible to deliver a convincing flight simulation using one projector and computer twenty years ago, he would have said, “no way”. Today, that answer would be very different. The frenzied pace of technology continues to enable us to do things previously thought impossible. Take flight training, for example. Aircrews can now train to operate multi-million dollar aircraft using a device as small as a smart phone, up to a simulator surrounded by a dome that fills an entire room. A smart-phone and a simulator the
