DC Youth Aviation - Build a Plane, Inc. is a non profit group established with the purpose of promoting Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning to high school students. D.C. Youth Aviation is a non profit with 501 (c) (3) status. Our EIN #: 81-4653975.
We have more planes, in que, that will be donated to our non profit, education STEM program throughout the year, so there is plenty of hands-on learning for all. Students will have the exciting prospect to learn in the classroom and at our Hangar 32 at Washington Executive airport.
Our first successful STEM restoration project was a 1952 Piper Pacer PA-20/135 fabric, tail wheel airplane. It was skinned, rebuilt, and returned to its historic state. It was restored from October 2016-October 2018...two full, busy years of hard work.
The second STEM restoration project will be a 1969 Piper Cherokee/ 140, metal skin, traditional, tri-wheel airplane.
We pride ourselves on facilitating student mentoring, taking an airport tour, meeting pilots, master restorers and engineers. Students can contact us directly by clicking on 'contact us'. In the summer, we plan STEM "Build a Plane" Saturday workshops.
