EAA Heartland Chapter 1240 - The Spirit of Aviation

Heartland EAA Chapter 1240

Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 1240 in partnership with the School Board of High-lands County and the Sebring Regional Airport have developed an initiative to expand Youth Aviation Education and the STEM (Science Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum.

This effort has enabled the community and other individuals to generate resources leading to the construction of an Aviation Development Center on the flight line at Sebring Regional Airport.

What we do:

This partnership provides “hands-on” activities and aviation experiences through EAA Young Eagles flights, workshops on aircraft maintenance and repair using donated aircraft, and flight training opportunities and scholarships for youth. Our youth is 25% of our population, but 100% of our future.

What your involvement will do:

The programs at the Aviation Development Center will be supported by the funds generated from community partners. We will be able to continue to engage youth and open opportunities for them in the aviation and aerospace industry. We need your support and involvement for this community re-source. The Center is staffed and programs provided by volunteers. All the funds will go to support the operation and programs at the Center.

Will you please join us in helping our youth?
