Greg quoted on the Experimental YouTube channel that it will be an option.

On one of the slides in the presentation, there were a couple of kids sat in the back of the 'Pine Pigeon' cabin mockupÖ

We're in. We were interested when they teased it, intrigued when the video leaked, and excited when we saw it at OSH and went to the forums the Van's guys held.

I'd love serial 15002, but I'll settle for top 25 :-)

With eleven planes completed I think I should do one more to make an even dozen.
After 26 years of flying Rockets I am not crazy about going slower but it would be nice to have a bit more cabin room. I was one of the early RV14 builders, with a parts kit, and it was fun to build something new and different.

Default Realize

You do realize that you are really asking who wants to be a repeat offender and build a RV15?

Because most of these people on VAF are already builders/ owners of a RV.

My preferred airplane to fly is a Rocket but my first build was an RV4, and I have built a RV7, and an RV10 and a RV14. I have flown all the test hours off those planes as well.

It only takes two things to build your own airplane (RV15):

1. All of your time

2. All of your money

At this point in my life Iím running out of both. My last RV build, an RV6, should be ready for inspection at the end of this month. Thatís when I throw in the towel.
