Barnstormers travel to sixth-grade classes throughout Oahu introducing students to the physics of flight by manning the controls of a World War II-era P-40 model airplane, flying a wing in a wind tunnel, and participating in activities that demonstrate the scientific principles of flight. Barnstorming usually takes place in classrooms in Hawaii public and private schools. Most programs occur during regular school hours, with an occasional Saturday, and lasts 3 to 4 hours.
