Beginning on October 20, EAA Chapter 932 is sponsoring a second Build N’ Fly program for future aviators ages 8 through 17.
Based on feedback from the first program last year, participants will build THEIR OWN model airplane. They will learn about aviation and how airplanes fly, use a flight simulator and then ultimately test their skills on their own airplane! At the end of the program, students will take their airplanes home.
Classes start Thursday October 20th from 6:00PM to 8:00PM and will meet every other week for 6 to 8 sessions.
October 20th, November 3rd, November 17th, December 1st, December 15th, January 19th and possibly February 2nd and 16th, if extra time is needed.
The cost for the full program is $35.00 and the class is limited to 10 students.

The EAA Young Eagles Build and Fly Program provides kids with the opportunity to be involved in a program where they can physically build a model airplane that they can take home and fly. The chapter has established a partnered relationship with a local club of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) to offer additional support to these young aviators.
EAA 932 is a grassroots organization that fosters aviation interest and participation through community outreach. With the help of volunteers, the EAA Young Eagles (YEs) Program is one that inspires and introduces young people to career paths such as aviation, engineering, aircraft mechanic, air traffic control, and aerospace. One objective of Chapter 932 is to expand the current YEs program by implementing a year-round Build and Fly program which provides hands-on build projects and year-round science/aviation education for engaged youth free of charge. This type of educational program addresses the need for accessible opportunities for young people to explore their curiosities and interests in aviation at a young age that can eventually lead to a worthwhile career path, many with opportunities outside of a traditional 4-year college.
