Santa Claus is Relying on Build A Plane Auction For Hard-to-Please Pilots

Build a PlaneLos Angeles, CA - Build A Plane, a non-profit organization which helps teachers teach science, technology, engineering and math by building real airplanes, has opened its annual eBay on-line auction just in time for the holidays.

“If you have a pilot to buy for this holiday season, log on to,” says Build A Plane executive director Katrina Bradshaw.  “We’re selling a lot of great gift ideas, from tropical vacations to VIP passes for AirVenture.  If you have a hard-to-buy-for pilot on your holiday list, this is the place to go!”

“This is a great way to support kids getting more exposure to aviation,” says Build A Plane president and founder, Lyn Freeman.  “Build A Plane has placed more than 200 aircraft projects in schools across the United States to give kids a chance to learn by building real airplanes.  It’s fund raising activities like this that enable us to do what we do.”
