WHAT IS THE HELI-HOUND® PROGRAM?
HELI-HOUND® is a helicopter awareness program for kindergarten through second grade students. If we are to prepare our youth for a fullfilling career in the helicopter industry, we must begin the educational process now. Research indicates that in the early years of child growth and development (ages 3-8), children are most impressionable. If we are to stimulate the child's fascination with science and technology, we must begin at this age. Research also indicates that most children develop their interest and personality traits by age six.
WHO IS HELI-HOUND®?
Heli-Hound is an imaginary character that comes alive in the classroom. The HELI-HOUND® classroom simulation makes learning about helicopters fun. Your students pretend they are members of a large workforce needed to launch Heli-Hound's helicopter on its way to fly a medical team, rescue people or fight crime. HELI-HOUND® is an exciting way for students to learn about helicopters. HELI-HOUND® introduces children to exciting helicopter career choices, stimulates early interest in science and math, and helps eliminate any fears children may have about flying.
