Helping Kids Learn How to Fly!

Giving kids a free ride in a small airplane is just the beginning! Our goal is to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation. The EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) Chapter 1354, based in Greenwood, Indiana, has been working with local schools for over 10 years and has recently been given the opportunity to expand our Young Eagles program.

We are currently building an Aeronautical Center of Technology at the Indy South/Greenwood airport to serve  5th through 12th grade students that are interested in aviation. But we need help! We need to furnish the new building with tools and supplies to give kids a hands-on learning experience. Your contribution will help us purchase the following items:

-A Redbird Advanced Training Device (an FAA-approved flight simulator)

-STEMpilot Pro 2 stations that provide K-12 curriculum, lesson plans, and tutored simulator learning missions

-Tables, chairs, and shelving for the classrooms

-Technology supplies and 3-D printers

-Hand tools and supplies to assist the high-school age students to build an actual Vans RV-12 airplane kit with the help of a certified airframe and powerplant (A&P) mechanic

Through the use of these tools, these kids will learn many of the necessary skills for a career in aviation--all before graduating high school.  With your help, we can educate the next generation of aviation enthusiasts and get them on the direct path to a flying career. Please donate to our cause today for a brighter future for the kids in our community. Help our program take flight!
