Request A Donated Aircraft

Our Programs


Youth Eagles Stockton, CA


To start a BuildAPlane project, fill out and submit the “Start a Project” form. When an airplane in your geographical area is donated and you agree to accept that plane, BuildAPlane will begin arrangements for the aircraft to be moved to your school.

BuildAPlane does not provide funding to relocate the aircraft, purchase tools or any parts or accessories. Once ownership of the plane is transferred to your school, BuildAPlane relinquishes any claim to the aircraft . The school now owns the airplane.

INSTRUCTIONS: If you have questions or need assistance in completing the form, please email the BuildAPlane Headquarters at You can expect individual attention by way of telephone and email. We are excited to help you in any and every way we can. The process can not begin until we have received your paperwork. Thank you VERY much for your interest in BuildAPlane!
