Hello All, I thought I would post a few pictures of my baby. It's still in utero but coming along. Wings on order, due to arrive in August.


With special thanks to my very understanding wife and sometimes helper Olga (Olgy the Riveter)

Default Pink slip for RV-14A

I just received my airworthiness certificate today. 3 years and 2 months from start.
Yeaaah! Just buttoning back up. Hope to fly in a couple of days.

Have a photo but do not know how to post. I know I know, who can possibly build an airplane, and not figure out the clear instructions on this site of how to post one photo.

All the best,


Building RV-14A. #140061

Default Absence of photos forgiven if you will provide some specs


Congratulations on getting completed!! Have you been looking at your normal flight profiles and comparing RV-14 versus Maule speeds? (See my signature line)

If you have time, could you post your power plant and avionics choices? I'm interested in seeing what the majority of folks are doing.

Cheers, James

Default New Seats

While the plane is being painted, hopefully done next week, my permanent seats are shipping tomorrow. Classic Aero totally redesigned the seats and it comes complete with the back installed into the cushion, instead of using Van's seat back and has a more wrapped around type of feel like a race car. They also have the hinges built in, so I will just need to take the pin, pull out the temporary seats provided by Classic Aero while waiting on these and insert the new ones. The color scheme flows with the interior, Hooker Harness belts and the exterior. Hopefully by mid August I will have some pictures of the final with all the paint done.

Default RV14A ... in France

It's the end of the empennage/cone tail kit.
The others kits are somewhere on the seas between US and France !
