Web I Den 8 Visits Northrop Grumman

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Webelos 1 Den 8 completed their Engineering Webelos Activity Badge requirements in February by visiting the Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems facility adjacent to the BWI airport.   During their visit, the Webelos received a tour of the production line where they learned about how engineers design, manufacture, and test radar systems for the F-16 Viper, F-22 Raptor, and F-35 Lightning II aircraft.    They spoke with a manufacturing engineer who explained how radar systems work and the different types of engineers that are needed to build them.    The highlight of their tour was a visit to the Flight Test hangar where the boys had the opportunity to speak with an Engineering Test Pilot, learning about what it takes to become a test pilot and seeing firsthand the various types of experimental aircraft that are used to flight test radar systems.
