Openings remain for the following courses:

- Electrical Systems & Avionics: This two-day course centered on the installation process, teaching proper soldering techniques in a “hands-on” workshop.
- Fabric Covering: This two-day course focuses on general fabric covering techniques using the Poly Fiber covering process.
- Sheet Metal Basics: This two-day course presents the basics of sheet metal applications and delivers a solid understanding of this construction method.
- What’s Involved in Kit Building: This 2½-hour seminar takes attendees through the entire building process, discusses relevant FAA rules, and will dispel some of the common misconceptions involved in building an aircraft.
- Additionally, spots are still available in the upcoming Repairman (LSA) Inspection workshop, which will be held at Andrews-Murphy Airport in Andrews, N.C., on Nov. 12-14. Attendees who successfully complete this 2½-day course, which costs $299 for EAA members, will be able to perform the annual condition inspection on any experimental light-sport airplane they own.
