An airplane built by Granbury High School students will be presented to the public during a breakfast event at Granbury Regional Airport from 8:30-11:00 A.M. on Saturday, October 21, 2017.
The breakfast will be held at the airport, which is located at 400 Howard Clemmons Road. The GHS airplane will make its flight debut at approximately 9:00 A.M.
The festivities include a fundraiser for the school project featuring lots of raffle prizes including rides in a T-28 War Bird and Travel Air Biplane. Several airplanes and cars will also be on display.
Twenty-four GHS students constructed the full-sized two-seat place during the 2016-17 school year. The aircraft will be used for flight training opportunities for students, and in the future aircraft will be sold to support the continuation of the program.
Eagle’s Nest Projects provides the seed money for the cost of the first two aircraft kits. Then the school initiative becomes a self-sustaining program by eventually selling the first-completed aircraft to cover the cost of the third and so on into the future.
