Wrapping up the merit badge

So, last week the kiddos got to go up in a small plane.  That was an opportunity that was given to them by a friend after I asked him about helping with the Aviation Merit Badge.  Taking a flight is just a small portion of  the badge.  Mike,Certificated Pilot, spent a few days (5 + hours total), teaching the rest of the badge.  Here are a few various shots from the week.  (They are all mixed up because I had to snag them from a friends FB page!).

Not sure what plane this was - I got there late...

Thank you PTC for allowing the scouts in.
