Read the fun story of two young engineers, Ty and Karlie Omega, and build simple models of the aircraft they discover on their hilarious family vacation. Along this roundabout journey, the kids build various flying machines to help the people they encounter solve problems and complete tasks. As you follow the story, you can build models of the ten vehicles in the story. Large, colorful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together.
The kids start out by building a passenger jet to bring their family to a tropical island. After they arrive, they construct a helicopter to help a scientist studying sea turtles reach a remote island. As they continue along their trip, they also build a biplane, solar glider, seaplane, triplane, prop plane, hang glider, space plane, and supersonic jet.
