Spirit of St. Louis Flight Simulation Attempt We’re looking for two or three middle or high school age pilots who think they can stay away for 33 – 38 hours, to try to cross the Atlantic ocean using a flight simulation of the Spirit of St. Louis. Pilots sleep in Mediatech for a weekend, and attempt the flight in real time, using real weather. Pilots must be 12 or older; at least one parent is required to stay with the pilots (we take shifts).
