Build-a-plane journal: Adventures in teaming up, dreaming big and having fun

Posted on in Community.

Jeppesen supports the need to get students interested in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) related careers. As a former chairman of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), Mark Van Tine is very familiar with the GAMA and Build-a-Plane national aviation design competition for high school students, and this year he and Thomas Letts, a functional analyst in Product Development, will work alongside the winning students to build a Glasair Sportsman Aircraft. Tom will be providing updates that will be posted on Jeppesen’s Community Blog detailing his experiences. Mark and Tom both have GoPro cameras that will be set up to capture the build using time-lapse photography. Follow along on their adventure here.
