CANCELLED – Aviation Merit Badge Program

Date: Saturday, Jun 25 | 10:00AM to 4:30PM

Earn your Aviation Merit Badge! 

Come and learn about aviation basics:

  • Plot your course and plan your flying adventure without ever leaving the ground!
  • Build a foam glider from scratch!
  • Tour the Air & Space Museum!
  • Experience the Wings Over the Rockies Flight Simulator Room!

Pricing: $15.00 per participant.
Adults can sit in IF there is space (adults should NOT register but may pay museum admission the day of the class).

This is a “penguin” class, because scouts do not need to fly to earn the badge. They will learn the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of flight, tour the museum, plot and fly a course on the simulators, and build and fly gliders made from a foam picnic plate (really!).

The merit badge counselors have a wide range of experience across several military and civilian aviation disciplines. At the end of the class, instructors will discuss other opportunities in the professional, private and sport aviation fields.

Class runs from 10 a.m. to approximately 4 p.m.
