History of TeenFlight

Teenflight originated from a casual conversation between Dick VanGrunsven and Bob Strickland. Bob recognized the importance of inspiring inner-city youth to enhance their math and science skills, thereby improving their life prospects. He chose aviation as a means to achieve this, laying the groundwork for Airway Science for Kids.

In 2005, Dick informed Bob about the development of the RV-12 kit aircraft by Van’s Aircraft, which presented an accessible build opportunity for teenage students. While Bob embraced the concept as an advanced level of Airway Science, he unfortunately passed away before the RV-12 was available. After Bob’s passing, Dick approached several longtime ASK supporters to utilize the RV-12 as a tribute to Bob and as a valuable educational tool for the students he aimed to empower.

Over time, the TeenFlight model has been replicated by various organizations across the USA, Canada, and New Zealand, such as Eagles Nest, TeenFlight Puallup, and Aviation Nation. These programs share similar core concepts but are often associated with a cost.Last summer the students completed TeenFlight’s eight plane and we are selling the plane to purchase our next kit.
