Donate to TAFM

The Teen Aircraft Factory of Manasota (TAFM) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping our local teens discover the world of aviation. Mentored by aviation professional and enthusiast, who are members of the Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 180 (EAA180), our teens build a two-seat airplane from a kit.

Although our mentors donate their time, there are costs associated with this program whereby we rely on Donors like you to keep going. Costs include hangar rental expenses at Sarasota-Manatee Airport, kits that include the various airplane components, aircraft paint, FAA inspections fees, and various other expenses.

Please consider donating to our cause by completing the form to the right and help building our future aviators and engineers one aircraft at a time!
