Chevak School started an aviation program last year and is continuing and expanding this program for the 2010-2011 school year. With the help of Build-A-Plane, AvSTEM, and many other companies and organizations, (see “links” page), we have a Rans S-6S kit in our school being built by our students.

The Rans S-6S is a two place, side by side, tube and fabric experimental airplane manufactured by Rans Designs in Hays, KS. Our Coyote will be powered by a Rotax 912 ULS engine producing 100 hp.

The village of Chevak is located on the West Coast of Alaska and has a population of around 900 people. Chevak is a Cup’ik Eskimo village surrounded by vast tundra and the Bering Sea.

Their story is an inspiration to all. We don’t hear enough about the great educational opportunities that are available to kids today. We are delighted to highlight their hard work and successes.

There has been a lot of progress and the plane is really coming together. See for yourself! We will be linking to Building log entries regularly here in the BuildAPlane LookUp! updates.
