Build A Plane
EAA Chapter 180 Build A Plane Program: Local kids take part in building a Van’s Aircraft RV12 from the ground up with supervision from experienced aircraft builders. It’s a two-seat all-metal side-by-side airplane with a large cabin that seats the occupants ahead of the wing spar for maximum room and superb visibility. The RV-12 is eligible to be licensed in the E-LSA category.
