The Project:

The goal is to have youth build an airplane under the guidance of resources supplied by Aviators by Design.  With that goal in mind, we will develop training and educational  programs for the youth that will build multiple skills and improve their  knowledge. 

Through the process of building the  project plane we want the youth to  recognize the relationship of Freedom and Responsibility. Also that  Aviation is an Earned Reward and that Pilots develop self-reliance. 

This program develops mechanical  skill, skills in math, avionics, welding, sheet metal fabrication,  aircraft covering, and social skills to name a few. It also develops  teamwork by working with professionals that are there to supervise and  advise the youth as they build their own airplane.
