Airplane #4 - Underway
In June 2021, we started our new crew of teens to help us build our fourth RV12. Although it was sad to say goodbye to many of our previous students, they are off to college and the military with a better understanding and respect for aeronautics. We have enhanced the program by adding structured classes to our build sessions, allowing us to teach the students about important topics such as weather, direction, mechanics, etc. Below are some pics of our crew in action!
We’ve been blessed with a great group of Teens and Mentors. During November and December we were able to attach the tail, install the landing gear, and hang the engine. The avionics and flight controls have also been installed. At the end of January we were able to attach the wings for the first time. We've got a date with the paint shop. The biggest remaining items are the tip up canopy and engine cowl. We expect this airplane to make its first flight around March 2023.
We've started to formally advertise this airplane for sale. Get it quick. If you're not ready to buy, check out #5 which is about 6 months behind this one.
