Kinross High School Build-a-Plane
Fifty-five pupils at Kinross High School engaged in our build-a-plane project. We are very grateful to Air Services Training at Perth Airport who, at the start of the project, introduced pupils to the aviation specific aspects of health & safety and the fundamental practical skills around tool control, engines and electrics.
We selected a Eurofox two seat aircraft for assembly under the auspices of the Light Aircraft Association. Two “Flying Class” shareholders travelled to the factory in Slovakia where our kit was manufactured.
The kit was subsequently delivered to a temporary workshop at the Loch Leven Community Campus on 24th November 2017. Assembly was led by a small team of adult amateur builders and pupils were given the opportunity to learn about simple aircraft design and kit assembly.
On 8th August 2018 the new aircraft (“G-OASK”) passed its initial flight tests. The intention is to give pupils from KHS and the surrounding area free air experience flights commencing in the Spring of 2019.
