AIRCRAFT BUILD NUMBER 1
Aircraft build number 1 is a Van's Aircraft Legacy RV-12 experimental aircraft. The airframe for this build was purchased from the Teen Aircraft Factory of Manasota in October 2021. The original owner of the kit started construction in 2016, and partially completed the tail, wings, and fuselage. The kit was transferred to another builder, and then subsequently donated to the Teen Aircraft Factory. The finish kit, engine, and avionics will be purchased from Van's Aircraft and completed by Teen Aviation of New Jersey. Work on this build is expected to begin by March 2022.
The airframe for aircraft build number 1 arrived at Flying W Airport from Florida on October 20, 2021. Two members of our team flew to Sarasota, rented the truck, loaded it up with help from our friends at the Teen Aircraft Factory of Manasota, and made the 20 hour drive to New Jersey the next day. The parts were unloaded from the truck and are currently stored in one of our team member's hangar. We will be moving the kit to our workshop in hangar 10 once we are done cleaning up and making improvements to the hangar.

Aircraft build number 2 is a Van's Aircraft RV-12iS Experimental Light Sport Aircraft. Teen Aviation of New Jersey expects to receive the tail and fastener kits by May 2022 and the fuselage kit by July 2022. Work on this build is expected to begin in September 2022.
Aircraft build number 2 is a Van's Aircraft RV-12iS built to Van's requirements for a youth educational build program. The aircraft will have the ROTAX 912iS engine and VFR avionics. This will be the first aircraft our students will build from start to finish. Joy To The Child, Inc.
