The South Dakota Air National Guard has offered us a once in a lifetime opportunity to have real Air Guard personnel teach Scouts the Aviation Merit Badge. There is a limit to 15 Scouts. Pizza dinner is included in cost.

Cost: $20 per person. 

Any participant that is 17 or older (adults included) must fill out the form below and return it to the Center for Scouting (800 N West Ave, Sioux Falls, SD 57104) by March 17th.




#3 - Do ONE of the following:

  • (a) Build and fly a fuel-driven or battery-powered electric model airplane. Describe safety rules for building and flying model airplanes. Tell safety rules for use of glue, paint, dope, plastics, fuel, and battery pack.
  • (b) Build a model FPG-9. Get others in your troop or patrol to make their own model, then organize a competition to test the precision of flight and landing of the models.

#5  – Find out about three career opportunities in aviation. Pick one and find the education, training, and experience required for this profession.  Discuss this with your counselor and explain why this profession might interest you.
