Update on the NAEC (CAF National Airbase) Construction Progress
Dallas, April 3, 2020 - Construction continues on the Henry B. Tippie National Aviation Education Center (NAEC) despite COVID-19. The county where the project is being built, at Dallas Executive Airport, has deemed construction as an essential service that is currently allowed to continue. This is extremely helpful in keeping the project’s timeline on track, but it is possible that there may be other elements that impact construction, such as supplies, manpower, or city coordination. We are laser focused on finishing the building on schedule, and as of right now we are on target to open by year-end 2020.
We have raised nearly $10 million dollars of the $12.3 million goal. To help in the fundraising efforts, a generous anonymous donor has agreed to match every gift made to Center received by December 31, 2020, up to $500,000! We look forward to the NAEC soon serving as the home to numerous CAF Education programs.
