Thumbs up Eagle's Nest Projects - Central High School (WI) in the News

Click the link to the full article for a delightful and inspiring success story about what can be accomplished in a community when a dedicated team of mentors and educators come together with a common goal; empowering their high school students. You won't be disappointed!

Congratulations and kudos to Jim Senft, Eagle's Nest Project Director at Central High School, to the dedicated team of mentors and flight instructors who handle most of the daily grunt work, and to the Westosha School District and the Westosha community at large for their outstanding and unwavering support. Job well done!

Students and family participate in EAA AirVenture 2017.

Joshua Engberg celebrated his solo on Feb. 21, 2017.

Central High’s STEM Aviation Program began through funding from the Eagle’s Nest Projects, a non-profit organization, to build a light-sport aircraft.

The initial funding helps the program become self-sustaining, explain officials with Eagle’s Nest Projects. Once a school builds a plane and trains students on it, it then sells it while students build the next plane. The money from the sold aircraft is used to buy materials to build the next aircraft, and on it goes.

Schools in Florida, Indiana, and Texas participate in the Eagle’s Nest Projects.

With seed money from Eagle’s Nest Projects, Central High students built a Vans RV-12 aircraft and named it Falcon One. Senft has experience building the RV-12. He’s on his third. <snip>
