DULUTH, Minn. -

Some young folks in the Twin Ports are getting the chance to work on an airplane.

The Superior Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association is currently running a program where middle school and high school aged kids can get first-hand experience in working on an actual airplane.

The project's goal is to fully restore a 1948 Aeronca Sedan, but as with any journey it's more about experience than a destination.


"Getting the airplane finished is not the goal, educating kids is the goal," said Dave Gramserup, a future aircraft mechanic.


The program is free of charge for any high school or middle school aged kids. Around 25 kids have participated in the project so far. For more information on how to get involved, click here.
