Welcome to my Teenie Two project website. 

Like most pilots, I've wanted my own aircraft since I've been able to fly, however the cost of owning an aircraft can be a formidable barrier.  While attending a fly in at Mesa, Arizona a few years ago, I had my first up and close encounters with amateur, homebuilt aircraft.  Needless to say, I was quite interested.  After years of consideration and months and months of planning, I decided upon the time tested Teenie Two, purchased my first roll of .020" aluminum and, on October 3rd, 2009, began laying out and cutting rib blanks. 

From there I progressed with my Teenie Two build, following the somewhat vague and sometimes incorrect plans.  However, I received much valuable advice and support from fellow Teenie Two builders through the Yahoo builder's group.  With their help, some common sense and a bit of thought, I have solved what issues I have encountered and have progressed nicely with my build.  It is now October 2013 and my Teenie Two has been built, inspected, and I've logged over 50 hours in the aircraft flying out of Chehalis, WA (KCLS).

The Parker Teenie Two is an all metal, low-wing, single-seat, single-engine aircraft first built in the United States in 1969 and marketed for homebuilding.   The cockpit was designed to be left open, with the addition of a canopy generally increasing the top speed of the aircraft.  The Teenie Two was specifically designed to use a converted Volkswagen automobile engine for power.  The outer wing panels can be detached for transport or storage.

The Teenie Two can be certified in the Experimental, Amateur built category in the US.  A pilot's license is required to fly it, as it is not considered an ultralight aircraft in the United States. According to the current plans holder, it can meet Light Sport Aircraft requirements, as defined by the FAA.

Teenie Two plans can be purchased for a modest fee from Ron Dixon at DCS, Inc.
