Cadet 2d Lt. Joshua Ling of Hawaii Wing Civil Air Patrol's West Oahu Composite Squadron discusses the Aerodynamics of an Airfoil and provides a DIY demonstration. After his aerodynamics discussion, he constructs a miniature airfoil and demonstrates how it can create lift. The activity uses wooden skewers, aluminum foil, ribbon, a glue gun and a fan. The lesson was presented on August 8, 2020, during a virtual squadron meeting.
