Y-I-BET On the Youth of America Youth Innovative Business
This kids have a chance to take a ride in one of
these hydraulically actuated flight simulators. Kids programs, nationally,
are doing wonders for our kids, but this kids program is rather unique
in that it focuses on kids from public housing projects. In these
housing developments, four out of five families are single parent families,
mostly having the mother raising the family. With the Y-I-BET program,
kids have a chance to do exciting things that are super educational at
the same time. Flight simulators, whether they are on your home computer
or something at an airshow can make a big difference.

Click on the photo for a close-up
view. The Quad Cities Air Show gives everyone a chance to participate in
some kind of activity. Whether it be a flight simulator or a bungee
jump kids can do it all. This airshow also has many vendors selling
toys, models, posters and just about anything else you can imagine.
The quad cities airshow also had an interesting, very large size, inflatable,
Titanic game which you can climb on and feel the sensation of sinking.

a 3-D movie to boot.
Flight simulators teach kids about airplanes and advanced technology.
This simulator ride came with 3-D glasses, shook us around with hydraulic
actuators and gave us a tour of Hawaii in a helicopter chase all at the
same time. Magnum, Look out! These kids are on your tail.
This particular simulator bit the bullet because is was more like riding
on a slow moving boat, it was hot, the video wasn't very clear and the
kids just said it wasn't very much fun. At the same time, the kids
did have the experience and learning involved in the ride.
At the Museum of Science and industry in Chicago, there are flight simulators
that look just like this one but are very exciting to ride on, so don't
let the review of this ride discourage you if you get the chance to ride
on one. Even the bad ones are worth the money for the experience.
