Teen Aircraft Factory of Manasota (TAFM)
The EAA180 Teen Build Program
Join TAFM: Mentors
Interested in Joining Our Program?
Our mentors range in age from 45 to 85 with a passion for aviation and an interest in sharing their time, knowledge, and skills with young teens. You too will learn a lot from the process and feel great about helping mold students into our future aviation and military professionals. You don't need to be a pilot or have an aviation background to join.
We meet every Saturday from approximately 9:00 - 3:30 to build our aircraft with the teens. We also participate in the Young Eagles Program on the third Saturday of each month. In season, a subset of the mentors also meet on Wednesdays to work on building/repairing other aircrafts.
We are located at the Sarasota Airport North Hangers.
