Big news for our high school student plane-building programs!

Earlier this month, the Aviation Museum was awarded $275,000 in tax credits from the N.H. Community Development Finance Authority to support expansion of the plane-building program to two additional high schools in Lebanon and Farmington, N.H.

The tax credits, awarded after a rigorous and competitive review, can now be marketed to N.H. businesses, with the proceeds used to support the new plane-build programs, which together will require the Aviation Museum to raise a total of $560,000.

The awards were announced at a ceremony held Tuesday, June 18 at the Bridges House in Concord, N.H.; check out photos from the event, at which the CDFA announced a total of $6.6 million in financial support for non-profits around the state.

Winning approval for CDFA tax credits is great news for our plane-building program—we now just have to sell them!
