VAF stays in business due to those who donate yearly and some wonderful advertisers

This honor system site strives to be a stress-free, civil place for fans of Van's RV kitplanes to virtually network and solve building issues.  The goal is that when you finish your RV and fly places, and meet in person the people you have talked with here, you will already kind of know them.  First and foremost this site is about good people.

Status Report

Just posting a quick update. Things are fairly quiet at the moment with work winding down. I've been ready for inspection for the last week, waiting on paperwork to clear the FAA and have the DAR come out.

Did a second engine run. Wow this is going to be fun. Starts easily, leaps forward on the taxi way, tracks straight with very positive control. Full power run-up shows 2250rpm as expected. I think it's ready to go!

Fingers crossed that we can get everything lined up this week and be in the air!
