Oshkosh, Wisconsin–Build A Plane (BAP), the non-profit organization that helps kids learn science, technology, engineering and mathematics by building real airplanes, is in need of aircraft donations.
Currently there are over 50 projects across the United States, plus others in India, the United Kingdom and Nigeria, and more than a 100 projects are forecast to be operating before the end of 2008. Kids are given project aircraft of all descriptions, from cabin class twins to partially built kits and planes to refurbish. Build A Plane understands the correlation between aircraft construction and real-world applications of math, science, engineering and technology.
Build A Plane is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. Aircraft donors receive receipts for their contributions and may take the fullest deduction the law allows. Any aircraft, or aircraft component is valuable to a high school program somewhere.
