Having Fun Learning How to Build Wing Ribs for the 1946 Fairchild F24W

 Learning how to build wing ribs for the Fairchild F24W!EAA Chapter 1250, Inc. Invites you to visit their Hands On Aircraft Builders' WorkShop - FunShop.
The event is held weekly on Saturday morning in a fully equipped modern heated hangar at Heritage Field (KPTW) Pottstown Limerick Airport starting at 9AM ending about 1PM..
This is your opportunity to join in with others in the aviation community to share your passion and enthusiam while you learn and help restore a beautiful awesome vintage airplane, the 1946 Fairchild F24W.
Aviation - learn by doing -  hands on experience - fun - make new friends!Please call to arrange your free no risk visit. You're under no obligation to volunteer or become part of this unique project.
However, this might be something you have been dreaming about since you were a kid! Build and fly your own airplane. If you were or are a model builder, this is your chance to go full scale. Work on the "Real McCoy!". You can get into this one.
You do not have to be a pilot, although many chapter members are. You will have a chance to meet and learn about their flying experiences should you decide to participate in this project..  You may even become good friends with one. Many opportunities and doors will be opened to you as an EAA member.
Just imagine the profound, positive impact that could have on your life! 
The Chapter's target is to restore and fly the Fairchild to AirVenture 2015 Oshkosh, WI. EAA 's Headquarters.
This is a very aggressive goal. Within sight and just out of reach. It's like our Super Bowl. We believe the chapter's project will be successful, but we know we can't do it without your help.
Come on over Saturday morning and visit our Aircraft Builders WorkShop - FunShop. See what it's all about.  If you love airplanes, you don't want to miss this opportunity. Space and class size may be limited. There is no tuition, but you must be willing to learn, work and have plenty of fun!.
Be sure to ask us about the Chapter's Complimentary Trial Membership in the EAA and all of its benefits that you may be eligible for.
