Youth Project Taylorcraft Restoration - AAA of Colorado

Certified Aeronautical Products is proud to support the Antique Airplane Association of Colorado Taylorcraft Rebuild Youth Project.  The airplane is a BC12-D which will sport a Continental C85 upgrade purchased by the AAA of Colorado last year.  CAP has also donated approved paperwork for the airplane to be modified with Luscombe exhaust.  Headed up by long-time antique airplane restorer, Jack Greiner, the program has provided opportunities for young people to get involved in aviation.  Past restorations on which the team has participated include a 1931 Rose Parakeet, a Pietenpol Aircamper, and now a Taylorcraft.  Some of the kids have achieved in pilot training and have gone on to obtain a private pilot's certificate.  We applaud the work of the AAA of Colorado and Jack Greiner.
