What is the Art of Flight Challenge?

Take flight by building and designing an aerodynamic cardboard airplane. A highly collaborative team building and business simulation exercise that gets teams working towards one common goal – a real cardboard boat that floats. At the core of the Eagle Glider Challenge is a real business simulation. Real elements of business are built right into the event and can be tailored to your unique goals, objectives and culture.

How does it work?

Teams will be provided various building parameters and go through several phases of the program:

Planning and Budgeting – Each team will be given a budget for materials, supplies, building consulting to be used for purchasing basic supplies including cardboard, tape, box cutters, and other materials. The groups will have to come up with a strategy to effectively use their available resources.

Aircraft Design – Teams will work together to build a functional and aesthetically pleasing aircraft. The customer, FullTilt Travel, has specific design requirements and requests that should be followed in order to win the FullTilt Travel’s aircraft building contract.

Project Management Twists – Our facilitators will throw the curve real business curve balls including human capital changes, new design parameters, changing time constraints, or mandatory use of certain materials – things that a team might experience in their real day to day.

Flight Test and Distance – Teams will transport their airplanes to a nearby hill or top of a small building or structure for an entertaining airshow. The teams will be awarded points based on the airplanes functionality, flight distance, aerodynamics and aesthetics.
