Pumpkins will be flying at Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley during the First-Annual Flight Works Alabama Catapult Challenge on October 31st! Registered teams are currently constructing catapults/trebuchets during the month of October, and will be competing against one another to see which team can make their pumpkin fly the farthest. Awards will be given for the top three longest distance launches. Most Photogenic and Most Creative Design will also be recognized.

Flight Works Alabama is still accepting registrations if you would like to gather a team, build a catapult, and compete on October 31st. Registration details can be found at

If you would like to watch the competition, come on down! You may do so free of charge. The Airbus Discovery Space Exhibit Gallery, containing over 40 hands-on activities related to aerospace at Flight Works Alabama, will also be open to the public that day. General admission tickets to Discovery Space can be purchased at, or at the door.

We hope to see you there!
