Aviation Merit Badge $15

Posted by Colleen Combest on March 20, 2022

This one day class runs from 10am-4pm and is being offered on March 26, April 23, May 28, and June 25, 2022. Scouts who complete their research for Req #5 can earn the badge on the same day. All scouts should bring their worksheet and lunch to the class. REGISTER HERE

This is a “penguin” class because scouts don’t 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!)
