Eagle's Nest Two begins! Tonight was the intro night for prospective builders at the Patriot Academy http://ngpatriotacademy.com
. As near as I could count, there were 42 students that showed up, and 19 stayed to talk and ask questions about the program. Who said there is no interest in aviation among our youth!
We unpacked the tools and I demonstrated some of the techniques they will learn in the next few weeks and months. It appears to be a very good group, and I am excited to see how it will go. This has the chance to become a permanent part of their training, and it is a beta testing program for how other programs will be set up, mentor training and material storage being of most interest. I hope to observe rather than doing direct mentoring. That way I can best polish our start-up procedures. We unpack the first Big Box next week.
This will be my first time back in a military environment in over 40 years. The prospect of being "Sir" instead of "Mr. Bob," as with the Eagle's Nest One, will take some getting used to. Look for a bunch of these soldiers at Oshkosh. Thank them for their service, and ask how EN-II is coming along.
