Default Tandem or side-by-side seating?

Are you hoping the new RV-15 will have tandem seating, or would you prefer it had side-by-side seating?

I voted side by side on the advice of my wife… who refuses to sit in a back seat.

Tandem is fine for the pilot, but do you want to sit in the back?

Well, yes if it's an Extra 330 or a Super cub, the back seat suits me just fine.

And if I get offered a ride in an F-18 or F15, YES, that would be just fine also.
Actually it would make my decade, just in case anybody has the ability to make that happen.



I fully expect VANS has done the math on the money, so I would bet 25 cents on the side by side with either lots of baggage space or 2 more seats in the back.

Preferred seat configuration? Actually...
ONE (30 degree reclined)Seat,
ONE (GE-F110) engine.
Trust me, 24 years flying it (F16C) tends to ruin one for anything else.

The RV15 however I agree will have FOUR seats, much like a Vans Cessna 180 or a 2+2 ala Glastar.

So if it has 4 seats is it tandem or side by side?

Vans has made no mention of it, but it presumably will be a 2-seater. Could be wrong, though.
