Build and Fly! Hands on Learning. Lots of fun! Young Eagles EAA!

Join us on Saturday's from 9:00 AM-11 AM for the Build and Fly Workshop! We will be teaching students about aviation by hands on activities. The students will work together to build a model aircraft, as well as other fun projects to learn about the skills needed to build their own model plane. 

Some of the skills learned will be the same skills needed for constructing a full size aircraft!! Students will start using a flight simulator, progress to a training plane, and then once the build is complete, they can graduate to flying the model airplane that they helped to construct!
