Honestly, thats one of the reasons I'm doing it. Ive been incredibly lucky/blessed to have a life in aviation, and kids today just don't know HOW to get I figured I'd try to lead as many as I can over to the fun side of that chain link fence...

Default I agree with jcarne

In short, there is too small and not too big when it comes to compressors in my mind.
I bought a 20 gal Northern Tool compressor from which is in adequate for painting, drilling or die grinders. If you want to do those things, get a 60 or 80 gallon compressor. If not, I recommend small and quiet like a California Air Tools 8 or 10 gallon.

My 2 cents.

RV-12iS complete and flying
