Are you ready to learn how aircraft fly and how the pilot controls the aircraft plus much more? This course combines both online and in-person learning. Requirements necessary to earn the badge can be completed in this course.

Most requirements are completed at the scout's convenience anytime within two weeks of the museum visit using Google Classroom. Homework assignments are brought to the museum. The final requirement is completed at the museum on the registered date where scouts see 15 various types of aircraft on static display. including the interior and flight deck of a USAF C-141B StarLifter.

Completion Reports and Blue Cards

The instructor of each class will log all completions and submit them to the Council office. Please allow at least a week after the course for the data to be entered into our system.

Scouts may come out of the event with a “partial” meaning there are requirements remaining to be completed. This could be due to requirements that are unable to be addressed during the merit badge session, there are requirements that can’t be completed on site, or due to the Scout failing to meet the requirement standard during the session. After the event, the Scout will need to keep in touch with the counselor from that class or find a merit badge counselor to work with to complete the merit badge either within their troop or in their area. Reminder when Scouts are contacting counselors that they follow the 2-deep leadership by having an adult cc’d to the email or on speaker phone with that counselor.

After two weeks from the event, we will not be putting in additional completed requirements to the event due to the fact that the report will state completed on the event date.
