Who's already decided they're building an RV-15?

The group of guys I fly with have already told me to order 2 kits immediately when they are available - they know I'll be watching.

Default Maybe

Iím a maybe trending towards most likely. For me it depends on if they do provide the flush rivet option being considered.

Not sure I have another build in me. All ready have one Lind up for as soon as I finish my RV-6.

Getting close, should have cowling modified by end of the week. Then back to plumbing the engine. Oh ya got to run the starter wires, and ground cables.
Then off to the finish work on the wings. ďIf the partís that are on back order come in ď

It checks too many of the boxes to not build it

Default If I had the time again...

My first build has taken so long that there isn't enough time left on planet earth to contemplate another!

But the RV-15 would actually be more suitable for the type of flying that I do now...

Another issue is the cost and the way just about everything has gone up due to inflation.
