The approximate running time of this play is 30 minutes.

It’s a bit technical but it’s fun! This presentation spans the 250 years that mankind has learnt to build flying machines A fascinating and highly visual presentation of science, engineering and applied maths, with a few crashes along the way! For pupils aged 10 and over. Perfect as a presentation to the school, parents or just as a classroom exercise.


Mr Fitz (or Fizzy as he is affectionately known) is an unusual teacher in that he has a travelling time machine! This means he is able to take his pupils back in time to witness some of the exact moments of exceptional inventions and how they were developed.

In this story, his class are able to witness the determination (not to mention insanity) of the daredevil inventors who wanted to fly like the birds! By the end of the presentation, the audience will appreciate what spectacular advances have been made in aviation in the last hundred years, thanks to those original men in their flying machines. The play requires the use of visuals and sound effects through an interactive whiteboard or by some other method.

21 speaking parts. Some non-speaking but ad-libbing crowd.

As with all our plays, there are full production notes that give advice on scenery, props and costumes. (Although minimal props and costumes are required for this play).
