Android Build an Interactive Story App Intents and Multiple Activities Starting a New Activity

What am I doing wrong?

Why is it not working?

LaunchActivity.java
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;

public class LaunchActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    public Button launchButton;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_launch);

        launchButton = (Button)findViewById(R.id.launchButton);
        launchButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
              Intent intent = new Intent(this,FlightActivity.class);              

            }
        });
    }
}

I tried your answer and got the message:

Bummer: The first parameter for the Intent constructor must be the current context (you can use 'LaunchActivity.this').

So, I put LaunchActivity.this in place of this and it worked! I haven't done an Android course, so I probably can't help with the next task, but this gets you through the first one. Best wishes.
