Area high school and home schooled students, ages 14 though 18, will have an opportunity to receive instruction on aircraft mechanics under the supervision of an FAA-qualified aircraft inspector.
The Lucile M. Wright Air Museum and Jamestown Community College will host a five-week, 30-hour course at the JCC Manufacturer's Technology Institute. Classes will be held for five consecutive Saturdays between Oct. 5 and Nov. 9 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with a half hour for lunch.
Students will learn: welding, the manufacturing of airplane parts, how to read airplane blueprints and to rig and assemble a Great Lakes biplane trainer.
The course is funded by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, so there is no cost to the students.
Students will be provided with logbooks to document their hands-on work for future needs.
Parents are also welcome to attend.
Students may register by calling the Air Museum at 664-9500, emailing email@example.com or www.lucilemwrightairmuseum.org/seam-registrationj-.html.
