Default Air Force Academy bound--AviationNation builder

We are very proud of Eli Edwards, one of the RV-12 builders from Columbus, Indiana. Eli has been accepted to the Air Force Academy. This isn't his first honor; he has been two-time NRA Junior National Champion in high power rifle (shoots one of those evil AR-15s.) That says a bunch about his work ethic and attention to detail. This is my second student to attend a military academy. About five years ago we had one who went on to West Point. These build programs attract the best and brightest, and we try to encourage them to excel in all that they do.

Congrats Eli! Huge honor. Big congrats to you as well Bob.

Did you catch the story on the USAFA Cadet that talked a suicidal man off a bridge and assisted in the location of a downed C-172.....all in the span of 72 hours? Story linked below.
