Only Way To Get A Kodiak For Under $10
The the owner/engineer of Inceptus has recently completed a paper airplane model of the Quest Aircraft Kodiak (with their blessing), and is using it to raise money for Mission Aviation Fellowship.
The paper model of the Kodiak is dressed in MAF livery. Made of top-quality laminated paper, the airplane kit "will provide both a satisfying build experience and hours of flying fun," says Inceptus owner Jeff Fouche. Built in the style of the wonderful "WhiteWings" airplane kits, this Kodiak is an all-original design that preserves the look and feel of the aircraft in a paper airplane tribute.
A portion of each purchase is donated to Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF), among the world's largest charity air mobility organizations!
Each package includes the airplane shape and graphics printed on high-strength paper (2 pages total). It is mailed in a stay-flat cardboard mailer made of recycled materials. Builders simply cut out each shape, then glue them together following the included instructions to make your own flying paper airplane Kodiak. The model is reportedly designed and manufactured in the USA.
The model is available from the Inceptus Design store for just $5.99 plus shipping and handling. Of that price, three dollars will go to MAF.
The Mission Aviation Fellowship says in its website that it "serves people who deal with challenges due to isolation in regions such as Africa, Asia, Eurasia, and Latin America by providing aviation, communications, and learning technology services."
