Default Emp kit ....... Finished.

My 5th build / 2nd RV.

Planning a '7 with Slider / 180hp V/P and Night VFR clearance here in the UK.

I'll do wings next winter and Fuz & finish the winter after. No rush as I have my '6 and a Pitts to fly meanwhile.

The '7 kit is noticeably better than the '6 I built in 2016 ... I'm guessing things will have moved on again if I ever do a '14

Hi there -- After YEARS of hiatus my RV-7A has been moved back into my garage, also in Redwood City. Just moved it in 2 days ago!

Any RV builders nearby?
