Hawker Beechcraft (HBC) has donated a Hawker 400XPr jet to serve as the flying classroom for record-setting pilot and educator Barrington Irving’s latest project. The “Classroom in the Sky” project, an initiative of Irving’s non-profit Experience Aviation, will expose millions of students to aviation by allowing them to interact with him during a planned around-the-world flight, which will take him to all seven continents. Irving believes the science, technology, engineering and math (Stem) curriculum under development will engage students in a way that is challenging for typical classroom learning.
