I am also a physician, and a new AME. I would not say, by a long stretch, that 3rd class medicals are "incredibly lucrative." We charge $70, so the reimbursement is much less than for any other...

Thanks again all. I will be meeting with a builder in the next week or so once we get schedules worked out, but figured I would provide an update.

Yes, it seems like it would be good to get someone in first hand to help me out as I get the feel for things.

What made me think I might have a rivet problem is that I can set some of them just...

There is ALWAYS lots of free beer in my fridge available for any Vans builder who would like to stop by!

Unfortunately I am quite a far ways away from you, near Lancaster PA.

Hello all,

My newbie woes continued today as I tried to rivet up by VS, which has led me to reopen an old forum debate on whether or not old rivets can "go bad" from hardening.

I have a 13 year old...

Older kit - corrosion?

Hello VAF!

I recently bought a tail kit that a builder had purchased way back in 2002, and essentially never started. Most of the metal was still covered in the blue plastic, and when removed looked...

New builder / first mistake

Hello all! After many many months of deliberating, I can now officially say I am a builder. I inventoried my 7 emp kit over the weekend and got to work. Things have been going pretty well thus far,...

You certainly do get what you pay for, and a 80hp Aerovee sonex could never expect to live up to the RV-12... but of course it also costs double. The Jab engine looks fun but with a 2 hr range cross...

The -12 is a really nice plane, but for me it mostly came down to performance. The cost is much higher than a sonex but with similar range on full fuel, and slower. Having never ridden in one...
