The Ron Alexander Youth Aviation Program was founded in 2013 by Ron Alexander and Jim Hoak. The purpose of the program is to share knowledge of aircraft-related subjects with youth who have a keen interest in pursuing a career in aviation.

Under experienced adult mentors, youth are taught the skills of restoring, repairing, and maintaining aircraft. Youth that are interested in learning how to fly can qualify for one hour of flight instruction for every 10 hours of program participation.

As a result of our program, several students have gone on to earn their private pilot's certificates, instrument ratings, and A&P mechanic certificates. 

All funds generated from this raffle will go directly towards our mission of training and educating aviation's next generation.
Some of our students and mentors at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in 2017.

The paint was black with red trim and a gold border. Similar to a Fairchild design. It was equipped with brakes, tailwheel, assist chord, cabin heater, carpet, and customer-supplied compass. It was sold to Ernest C.J. Bick on October 21, 1938. The aircraft went on to be owned by seven other individuals before Larry Bishop donated the aircraft to our organization in 2015.
