Aviation Explorer Post 9868

Aviation Explorer Post 9868  was formed to organize the youth;   As part of their program they started building a STOL CH 750 airplane  kit in the Homebuilders Hangar on the AirVenture grounds in 2012. 
 

The goal of the AirVenture  project was not to complete the kit aircraft, but more  importantly the goal was to get kids and adults involved in building an  airplane.  It was a learning educational process that put emphasis on  developing S.T.E.M. (Scientific, Technological, Engineering and Math)  skills and exposing flight to many with the aircraft home building  process. 

Expectations of members of  Aviation Explorer Post 9868 besides building the project plane are for  all participating - the youth, the adult leaders and the parents to  learn; 

Mutual Respect 
Accountability 
Responsibility 
Team Work 
Reliability 
Leadership 
Patience 
Attentive Listening Skills 
Effective Communication 
Understanding Hard Rules – Soft Rules 
Have Fun Responsibly
