Build-a-Plane Needs Your Aircraft

Help students and reduce your tax bill by donating a neglected airplane.

Build a Plane
Build-a-Plane has placed more than 300 airplanes with schools and youth aviation organizations around the country.Build-a-Plane

Most airports around the country have at least one airplane that sits unused, its tires flat, paint fading and engine deteriorating. There are also many kit airplanes taking up space in hangars and garages. If you are the owner of one of these derelict airplanes, you can turn that asset into a double positive. By donating the airplane to Build-a-Plane, you can write off its value, saving money on your tax bill, while turning the airplane into a learning project for high school students.

Build-a-Plane will match your airplane with a school or non-profit organization in your region that will make all the arrangements to move the airplane. Rather than sitting unused, it will serve as a learning tool and as an inspiration for students to pursue various aviation careers. There are several schools around the country currently looking for airplane projects from incomplete kits, to deteriorated airframes, to flyable airplanes.

Whether the airplane will serve as a tool for budding aviation technicians to learn about sheet metal work, aerodynamics, or STEM-related topics, or be used for flight training, having an aircraft available as a teaching tool is invaluable.
