Kids Building Planes
A member started this program March 2019. In the image banner above you’ll see what the kids are building. It’s the yellow airplane; a MiniMax 1650 EROS. It will cost about $15,000. Their plan is to sell it and use the proceeds to build another airplane with a new group of students.
He started this project to teach area youth how to build an airplane (science, math, woodworking, safety, teamwork, etc), introduce them to aviation and the career opportunities available, educate them about the Experimental Aircraft Association and the Young Eagles program, and provide an additional activity for the youth of our community to join.
He had such an immediate, overwhelming response that he ended up with too many students, so he had to create multiple sessions (smaller class size). He currently has a waiting list. You can submit an application and waiver (on the right) to get on that list.
