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.
