Training to start for student plane build

LONDONDERRY — The Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, 27 Navigator Road, is making progress on its project to work with high school students to build a full-size flyable airplane. Students will be guided by skilled volunteers from the museum and will build the plane from an RV-12iS kit, creating a two-seat light sport aircraft. Students will learn riveting, wiring, engine installation and everything needed to win FAA certification. The program involves students attending Manchester's School of Technology. When the plan is complete, it will be sold with proceeds going to finance a future build.

Any businesses or individuals who may want to support this museum project can contact executive director Jeff Rapsis at
