Teaching valuable life lessons through aircraft restoration.


88CHARLIES is a program designed to provide youth aged 12 - 18 years a hands-on opportunity to explore aviation as a career or hobby. However, the primary focus of 88CHARLIES isn't just about building airplanes. Through weekly workshops, the program teaches both academic and interpersonal skills to students. We  offer this program at no cost to the students or families involved, but we cannot achieve our goals alone.
