A group of Tulsans spent the day flying high and fast in the name of education.

These aren't your usual pilots, they are piloting radio-controlled aircrafts.

The planes are made out of Styrofoam, capable of flying thousands of feet in the air and going upwards of hundreds of miles an hour.

The team hosting the event is the "Litespeed Flight Demonstration Team"

The group brings this fun to different elementary schools.

Dennis Michael, President of Litespeed Flight Demonstration Team, tells us "We go in elementary schools all around the state, and we teach the STEM disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics using radio-controlled airplanes. We fly them inside the gymnasium, like an airshow style performance.”

Michaels tells us they will be visiting Tulsa Public Schools for the rest of this month and next.
