Introduced in 2009, Teen Flight (TF) serves students 14 and older who meet every Saturday to build, and eventually fly, an RV-12 aircraft from a professional kit. The Teen Flight cadets pursue an “applied engineering curriculum” including learning to read plans, riveting, measuring, fitting, electrical systems, engine systems, etc. Our TF model has inspired replication in other sites around the nation. The first TF group completed their kit plane in 2011, a second was completed in 2013, a third was completed in 2015, and a fourth plane is underway and will be completed in June 2016.
We are now accepting applications for our 5th Cohort to start late fall 2016. If you are interested in participating in this cohort, please fill complete our ASK TeenFlight Initial Application located in the “Our Programs” menu tab.
