Default RV-12iS teen-build project in Italy

A new RV-12 school building adventure started here in Italy, together with Istituto Martino Martini - an aeronautical high school located in the northern side of our country - I lead the project that involves teens from 16 to 18. They have the tail cone almost completed with wings and fuselage already ordered.

Using the kit to build and fly an RV (that will be registered under E/AB), we teach the students to learn teamwork, leadership, focus, and hands-on skills to prepare them for the real job world.

The program is organized for different fields of application divided into classes so the students are guided to develop skills in metal building, electrical system, avionics installation, engine, and system installation.

It's a great honor to be part of this project

This is wonderful! Keep up the good work! I would have loved someone to do this when I was in high school.
