I sent you a pm before I saw this thread. Contact Jerry at the Museum. He has ran a non profit training program with students for many years out of the Museum. If anyone knows how to put this kind of thing together, he will.
I strongly believe in these programs, anything to get kids interested in what I consider a dying "hobby". I am a life time member of the Museum and donate annualy to the program. When you get yours up and running, count me in as a donor.

Bravo to all of you!

PS: What sort of primer do they prefer?

They prefer none, but have followed the construction manual and used Marhyde self etching where appropriate.

Default Inspirational!

A big hooraay to the adults giving their knowledge, time, patience and money. A bigger Hooray to the teens who appear to be very enthusiastic and interested. There is bound to be a future builder and/or pilot in this crowd of kids. Man... I sure wish I could have been involved with this sort of thing when I was in high school.

Default Questions for the group

I am a group member building an RV12 at the EAA105 hanger, Twin Oaks. It is fun to watch your progress and estimate our schedule. I am interested in the set up that you used for getting the Team Flight program established. Age of the students, how many, selection and qualifing process and how funding the cost worked out. What are the plans for the airplane when it is completed. Will it be maintained for the flight training of the student builders? How tough would it be to get another group started on a similar project in say Bend. Thanks, Paul Grimstad
