Aerospace Consortium Launches Mobile App
The DFW Regional Aerospace Consortium, managed by Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County has developed an Aerospace gaming application for smart phones and devices. The consortium is working with our regional academic partner, University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), to develop the game and in partnership with the North Central Texas Council of Governments.
FLYBY was designed to generate interest in Aerospace and Aviation careers for elementary, middle, and high school students in an effort to build the local talent pipeline for future employment opportunities. The game features aircraft from local Aerospace companies – Lockheed Martin’s F35 and C130J, Bell Helicopter’s V-280, and Airbus Helicopter’s H155 and EC255.
Players will compete in challenging levels, overcoming obstacles and unlocking various aircraft by collecting parts to that specific vehicle. Each level will include Aerospace and Aviation trivia questions for players to answer and collect points.
