The first plane constructed by TeenFlight secondary students is now complete and TeenFlight is ready to start work on building a second plane.
Secondary students interested in building a real airplane and who would like to learn about aviation, mechanics, electronics, aerodynamics, metal fabrication - and more - are invited to attend an information session with their parents on Wednesday, September 21 at 7 p.m. at the Sealand Aviation hangar at the Campbell River Airport.
TeenFlight Campbell River is a non-profit society created in partnership by Sealand Aviation and School District 72 that is working to build enthusiasm for aviation by teaching students the science of flight and increasing the profile of the aviation industry and aviation career opportunities.
Students build a plane in a series of subkits over the course of 18 to 24 months under the mentorship of local pilots and aircraft maintenance personnel.
