Here's a useful resource if you’re doing a transport project with your class, or you have some army mad pupils who you're trying to inspire...

First airing on April 1 2009, Young Eagles from The Museum of Army Flying is a series of interactive web based shows for kids.

It will feature young presenters and will explore all things aviation, its history and heritage.

The young enthusiast will be introduced to everything from historic and experimental aircraft, how they flew and the men who flew them, to today’s modern attack helicopter, the Apache, and their new pilots and ground crew.

There will also be behind the scenes reports of Army Air Corps activities, potentially from the front line in Afghanistan.

The Museum of Army Flying is inviting comments and feedback on its website for future episodes. It even asks for young people's involvement.

What a great way for your class to interact with the series.
