The Bill Sattler Memorial Foundation for Aerospace Education (The Sattler Foundation) is a 501 C3 non-profit organization that provides students in Middle Tennessee exposure to aviation and space education and related employment opportunities.
To help students develop thinking skills and problem solving skills while learning about aviation and space. Whether through in-school curriculum or summer camps, students will become creative, innovative critical thinkers through engineering design and hands on experimentation while working closely together solving real-world problems.
Exposing young people to Aviation and Aerospace education is key to what we do. We feel early hands-on exposure to the world of aviation and science is critical to meet the needs of future generations.
The Sattler Foundation currently conducts two summer camps.
Senior Exploration Camp is designed for 10-12th graders. The camp is held at the Lebanon Municipal Airport in Hangar #2. During this camp students will visit the Nashville International Airport, Middle Tennessee State University’s Department of Aerospace and local aviation museums and industries. The camp week ends with an introductory Young Eagles Flight in a general aviation aircraft sponsored by EAA Chapter 863. The 2023 camp will be held JUNE 5th through JUNE 10th. Camp hours are 8am to 4:00 pm, Monday - Saturday.
Junior Aerospace Camp is designated for rising 8th and 9th graders. The camp is held at the Lebanon Municipal Airport in Hangar #2. This camp is designed to introduce students to aerospace basics, such as parts of aircraft and function and design. Students will meet with aircraft builders, weather experts and an astronaut. Students will also build flying models and fly a plane…by simulator. The camp week ends with an introductory Young Eagles Flight in a general aviation aircraft, sponsored by EAA Chapter 863. The 2023 camp will be held JUNE 12th through JUNE 17th. Camp hours are 8:30am to 3:30pm Monday - Friday and 10am-noon on Saturday.

Bill Sattler was an astute businessman here in the Nashville TN area and an avid aviation enthusiast. He particularly loved building aircraft and working with the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles program. Bill always had a heart for giving students the ability to realize their dreams!
Bill passed away in late 2014, and in his honor the Bill Sattler Memorial Foundation for Aerospace Education was created and is based in Hangar #2 at the Lebanon Municipal Airport.
The Bill Sattler Memorial Foundation for Aerospace Education is honored to announce its first Aviation Scholarship which will be called “The Sattler Foundation Scholarship”. The scholarship will be for high school graduates moving up to an aviation/aerospace program at a Tennessee university or technical institution. The Sattler Foundation Scholarship recipient will received $1000 per year of study for a maximum of $4000.
The closing date for the 2023-2024 application process will be April 1, 2023.

Aviation is in my blood. My grandfather is an aeronautical engineer and has several pattens credited to him for airplane wing designs. My grandmother is a retired flight attendant for American Airlines. My uncle is a commercial pilot for Delta, and both of my parents are also pilots. (click here to find out more)
Hands on model airplane construction helps demonstrate flight characteristics...lift, weight, drag and thrust.
Nothing like experiencing your first flight in a real airplane.
Airborne without an engine? Campers enjoyed a lighter than air experience.
How cold is liquid nitrogen? How is this a fuel source? Let's learn together.
Corporate pilots explain some of the many technology advances in the form of "electronic flight bags and navigation".
A week-long journey of wonder and discovery. Dreams really do come true.
