Yes, exactly - the RV-12iS is what's available to build, and one is currently underway at the Portland TeenFlight class (this is airplane #7 for the Portland area program). This the first RV-12iS the local program has built and they're making good progress.

Many, many other teen-build programs across the country and around the world are also building the RV-12 in various later phases of work as well as some that have started their own RV-12iS projects more recently.

Overall there are around 70 RV-12's that have been or are in the process of being built by these terrific programs around the world -- so far!

I sometimes wonder if it would just be easier for these Teen Flight birds to be left in the raw, and ask the future owner if they'd like it wrapped instead of painted, in the pattern of their choice.

This would keep the costs, sales tax and luxury tax or registration assessment taxes down a bit for the new owners, especially in states like CA where I'd pay another 9.5% in sales tax on top of the sales price.

Default Kettle Moraine Youth Aviation build program

KMYA, Inc, a non-profit we formed two years ago just completed our first RV12 with local HS students! FAA issue our Airworthiness Certificate last week. We're getting huge local support and are expanding to a second HS this fall. We have 12 mentors and have thoroughly enjoyed the process. We have two students enrolled at Emory-Riddle AZ just in this last two years. If anyone is interested in how we got things going here in Hartford WI, I'd be happy to discuss.

For those programs already having completed projects, is it true we can get a 10% rebate on the cost of the kit once the plane is completed? We've ordered the second plane already. Who should I speak to at Van's

Greg (two posts above yours in this thread) should be able to provide you with the details.

Correction
Anyone calling the office to request info on the teen build project discount program should ask for Mitch Lock.
