District Merit Badge Days
District Merit Badge Days are hosted by several districts and are an opportunity for Scouts in troops or crews to work on several merit badges. Classes are taught by adults with experience in the field. The following districts typically hold merit badge events:
Lone Star Flight Museum Overnights and Aviation Merit Badge
The Lone Star Flight Museum, located at the entrance to Ellington Airport, is home to over two dozen flightworthy aircraft including historic WWII era bombers and fighters, the Flight Academy explaining the science of flight, a bay of flight simulators and the Mooney Hangar for preflight inspections, and the history of aviation in the Heritage Gallery. Scouts can sign up for several merit badge workshops such as Aviation, Electronics, Weather, and American Heritage. The Aviation Merit Badge is also available for troops during an overnight, and Cub Scout packs can do fun flying activities and spend the night under the wings of a warbird. For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
