Partner programs have been conducted in Romania, Hungary, Bahamas and Ecuador. Our camps have been conducted at remote airports surrounded by farmland, as well as under New York City’s airspace.
The Brigade Air Book 1 curriculum was written and published in 2001. The curriculum kit contains a leader’s guide with Bible lessons integrated with aviation anecdotes, two interactive educational programs (courtesy of NASA), instructional videos on DVD, navigational tools, and educational wall posters.
There are currently about 70 churches, home-schools and Christian schools implementing the curriculum.
