Aviation Merit Badge

Image Posted on Updated on

From: Mr. Vogel

Aviation merit badge class at Wings Over the  Rockies Air and  Space Museum is open for registrations. 

It’s called the”penguin class” because you don’t have to fly to earn the badge in one day.

The 10 a.m.-3 p.m. class is availableMarch 10th. 

The class will cover how aircraft and engines work, some history and careers. You will tour our nationally famous museum, fly the FPG-9 glider, chart a course between airfields and fly it on the simulators. You certainly don’t want to miss the X-wing fighter and pod racer, on loan from  Star Wars director George Lucas.

The museum’s $15 admission also has a bonus for scouts: the course is free with your admission.

To sign up, go to the Wings website and click on the education tab for registration instructions and course prerequisites.

Parents who want to sit in on class may do so, space permitting, but DO NOT REGISTER for the class.

Please consider car pooling to this event. The troop is not organizing transportation for the scouts.

NOTE: You must sign up at the Wings website, This Eventbrite is only a courtesy to let you know about the event.
