Local EAA Chapter Teaches Kids How to Work on Real Airplanes

Workshop Held At Leesburg International Airport In Central Florida

The Experimental Aircraft Association held one of its Chapter 534 Aviation Youth Saturday workshops at the Leesburg International Airport in Leesburg, FL. March 17.

EAA Chapter 534 runs the Saturday aviation workshops for young people to teach them how to build and repair real experimental general aviation aircraft.

EAA Chapter 534 has committed itself to build up their Aviation Youth Program to work with boys and girls ages 10 to 18 who have an interest in learning what makes airplanes fly and general aviation, according to a chapter news release.  They get the opportunity to learn how to use the tools of the trade and work on several aviation projects that are available in the chapter’s hangar.

They learn how to repair and build experimental planes under the supervision of certified aircraft mechanics and EAA chapter members who have experience with home-built airplanes.

Chapter 534 has been the recipient of a home-built aircraft, a Mini Max, that had been damaged in a tornado. This plane is the first one these kids will be working on. They will learn how to repair the damaged wings and get its engine fine-tuned and running.

When this project is completed there are three other aircraft kits that have been donated to EAA Chapter 534 for young people to work on.

The idea behind this program is to kindle an interest in aviation for these young folks so that one day they may want to become pilots themselves or start an aircraft building project of their own.
