Celebrate Orville and Wilbur Wright’s first airplane flight by trying to fly yourself. This online game lets you control the flight of the FPG-9 by moving the elevons and rudder. Practice a few times to see how the glider moves before you take on the challenges. First you might want to learn about the FPG-9, and see what yaw, pitch, and roll have to do with its flight and control. When you feel you’ve learned enough in flight school, take the flight challenges in which you need to fly the glider through targets. If that is too easy, earn your wings by going on flight missions. You can even learn how to make your own FPG-9. Don’t crash and burn.
