Education Director for the TeenFlight Program

I joined the TeenFlight Program in 2015 to provide an educational structure to an already exceptional experience.  I recruited students from over a dozen high schools to participate in the program.  Twice a week, we meet up and build a Van’s RV-12 kit plane with the help of amazing mentors with a lifetime of experience.  I’m learning a lot, too.  One day per week, I teach a lesson on some aspect of aviation, such as lift and drag, aviation weather, glide ratios, bird flight, etc.  Mentors assist with the build process and I have learned a lot about metal and rivet-built aircraft.
