There will be a CAD design learning center, a metal working area equipped with CNC machines that can be driven directly from the CAD center, and a complete wood and sheet metal area. Future plans also include a laser cutter for tubing, wood, and metal. The hangar will have in floor heat, a kitchenette, and a gathering / meeting area.
Learn, Build, Fly is honored to be part of an active and growing aviation community.
Learn Build Fly is a non-profit 501 C3 organization dedicated to promoting and encouraging recreational aviation and education through all ages. Members ranging from twelve to eighty have contributed their time, effort and enthusiasm to bring our project to life. With a lot of work and learning, the different pieces of steel tubing, wood and fabric you see in the build hangar will soon become a fully functioning aircraft. Join us on Tuesday nights and watch as an airplane comes to life...all with YOUR help!
