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.

  Wishing you and yours a happy, safe and RV-filled weekend.

First Flight ...Randy Pflanzer RV-12

N417E became airborne this morning. Jim Winings did the honors. This was his 14th first flight and he has now completed a first flight in all of Van's designs except the -14.

The wind kind of kicked up so I will wait until tomorrow morning to make my jaunt. I've waiting 6 years, one more day won't hurt.

Everything worked great. Heavy left wing and right rudder tab needed. Otherwise, she flew great.
