BSA Aviation Merit Badge

TCA schedules Boy Scouts of America (“BSA“) Aviation Merit Badge workshops to further aviation knowledge.  Not only will your Boy Scout receive most of the requirements in order for them to achieve their Aviation Merit Badge, but they will also be in a facility right next to the Lone Star Flight Museum that will most definitely allow them to complete their badge requirements.

See our BSA Aviation Merit Badge Workshop page for further agenda information and registration form.
