SportAir Workshops Mini Courses in North Carolina Next Weekend
August 19, 2010 — Thinking about building an aircraft but not sure how to take the first step? EAA’s SportAir Workshop will hold a “Discover Aircraft Building” workshop next weekend, August 28-29, hosted by EAA Chapter 1114 in Apex, North Carolina. This two-day workshop teaches the fundamentals of aircraft construction including wood, composite, fabric, and sheet metal. You’ll build individual projects and learn the ins & outs of the various construction techniques. At the end of the course you’ll leave with a great feeling of accomplishment and the confidence to take the next step and join more than 30,000 others who have built their own airplane.
Also Saturday, SportAir’s What’s Involved in Kitbuilding seminar is a two-hour introduction into all aspects of how to successfully build a kit aircraft - from idea to first flights - and includes a pizza dinner! If you can’t devote the entire weekend, this is a great first step in understanding the process of building your own airplane.
Cost of Discover Aircraft Building is $195. What’s Involved in Kitbuilding is $25, but sign up for Discover Aircraft Building and the Saturday evening session is included at no extra charge. In addition, as a special incentive to workshop participants and in support of the SportAir workshop program, our major sponsor, Aircraft Spruce and Specialty, offers discounts on tools, materials, and supplies from their extensive catalog, along with free shipping on most items! Right now there is limited space available in both presentations. For course details, visit www.sportair.com or call 800-967-5746 to register today.
