Every year, the Tuskegee Airmen Inc. of Albuquerque, New Mexico fund a Summer Youth Aviation
Camp. It runs for 5 days and provides 32.5 hours of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and
Mathematics) instruction. Student Cadets are introduced to both Military and Civil Aviation, Flight
Control Facilities (Regional and Local Federal Aviation Adminstration), Aircraft Operations and
Maintenance, are introduced to several aircraft and learn how they are used by their owning
organizations, and culminate their training by receiving a lesson in how to fly an actual aircraft.
In-Classroom instruction includes lessons on the physics of flight, discoveries and improvements in
control of aircraft made by the Wright Brothers and Curtis, conduct experiments related to flight
with respect to Newton's three laws, and practice completing flight plans while following those
flight plans when flying aircraft simulators.
Mr. Sauer is a primary instructor for the class and developed the curriculum for the Tuskegee Airmen.
Magdalena is awarded 10 slots for students of Magdalena Middle and High School per year for his work.
