Gulfstream Aerospace Hosts Flight Lab for Students

On Thursday, March 19, 2009, Gulfstream Aerospace, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, provided an exciting, handson activity for local students participating in its Explorer Post program.

The event included tours of the company’s Savannah-based labs as well as an opportunity to use the jet-maker’s flight simulator. In the Stereolithography lab, students were able to see the latest technology in action as models and parts were being created using 3-D computer imagery.

Following the tour, students received a training session in the flight simulator.

A joint effort among Gulfstream Aerospace, the Boy Scouts of America’s Learning for Life program and the Savannah- Chatham County Public School System, the Explorer Post program gives students firsthand information about aerospace career options and the opportunity to learn about the skills and educational preparation necessary to achieve their professional goals.
