Donations to HBA

The Hatz Biplane Association is a non-profit, tax-exempt, 501c(3) corporation dedicated to the support and education of our members. That means you can help keep HBA growing and active with a donation of any amount you wish to the HBA and it's tax-deductable.

That's right! Funds that will keep the organization going strong, letting us improve the work we're doing in supporting the builders--and it's all deductable on your Federal taxes! And in an volunteer organization like ours, where our overhead is so light, just about every dime of your money goes toward our goal of support and education.

So, please consider giving something extra through a donation to HBA. We'll mail you a letter of acknowledgement stating the amount and our heartfelt thanks for your generous donation.

Donations are just like altitude and runways... every little bit helps.

The "simpler Hatz", designed by Dudley Kelly. Without a centersection and with most of the curves squared-off, the Kelly-D is distinctive, yet flies much like the Hatz.

Your plans set will carry its own serial number and include all the information you'll need for that one-of-a-kind Kelly-D.

$150.00 US each

How to Order

The HBA Store, where you can find everything Hatz and Kelly-D. We're doing this for fun and to raise a little money for the cause. All proceeds go directly to the HBA, not to me or anyone else. This way, we can keep doing what we're doing!

All prices include shipping, handling, and whatever else everyone else is charging you extra for. You pay the price you see.

It's an old fashion store for an old fashioned airplane.
