Default Greg Hughes Interview

Greg talked a bit about the RV-15 during this FLYING interview.

https://www.flyingmag.com/story/news...a5CNp7fZ4qRf3M

The biggest takeaway is the 15 will come out as a taildragger first with a tricycle version to follow. Not much else beyond what we already know.

He also mentioned they're planning to make factory planes following MOSAIC.

Big plans for a company that's struggling to even fill kit and parts orders accurately and on time!

Not to be an apologist for Vans but I'm sure they anticipate an end to the supply chain problems and are positioning themselves for the future.

And if they take money first and deliver planes later, they'll have float to hire lots of rivet-smashers and fiberglass sanders.
