Building Airplanes – A Riveting Experience!
Join us at Wings Over the Rockies for a fun, hands-on, learning day in the hangar! Kids and families will receive riveting kits to put together their own model airplane. We will also have wooden air tanker planes to put together and paint. There will be demonstrations of construction and riveting on actual planes that are in the process of being built and the opportunity to learn from some of our local craftsmen about what it takes to build your own plane. You can also get a walk around of the Vans RV-12iS that was built by Wings Aerospace Pathways (WAP) students and see the very start of the next RV-12iS that is currently being built.
Talk with Neil Kardos about his highly modified RV-6 and with Brian Beatty about his award winning RV-7A. This will be an opportunity to learn about their experiences of building their airplanes from start to finish.
