Hurray and huzzah, that situation may finally be changing. And not just because of Build A Plane. This past April, the EAA announced that it had teamed with Hal Shevers, founder and chairman of Sporty's Pilot Shop, to create a program called "Next Step." Shevers is a big supporter of the Boy Scouts' Aviation Explorers program, has provided free Cessna 172 panel posters for every Young Eagle since that program's inception and, through the Sporty's Foundation, contributes funding to Build A Plane as well. But now, Sporty's Foundation is not only adding a logbook to the poster package, but is also making Sporty's online Complete Private Pilot Course available to every Young Eagle (past, present and future) … free of charge. In the first 90 days after the program was launched, 1,400 kids signed up for the course.
