G-TRVR has had first from Old Warden. "June has also seen the first flight of the Vans RV7 G-TRVR. The construction of this aircraft was started by Trevor Roche and completed by SVAS Treasurer John Edser. It made its first flight before the evening air display on 16th June in the hands of Paul Stone. "



 Another first flight report for David Brooms RV7 G-RVDB, looking good and coming to an airfield near you soon I'm sure. Well done David.

May has another RV7 project started and also 3 more leared to fly, RV6A G-CKTF, RV7 G-ICRV & G-XTAZ. I'm sure with the great weather of late these will all have been transofrmed into the RV grin by now :)))

April sees another RV7 G-RIKD cleared for flight and also another two RV7's started. Aero Fredrichstaven had Vans on show with Van himself, Gus and Daryl on the stand along with a customer built RV14, first in europe and a rathern nice example, and also a RV12. First time I'd been there and well worth the visit, lovely part of the country as well. There's also a RV10 SB on Elevator stop inspections.

Been a bit lacking with the updates the last month or so. There have been a couple of RV12 SB's on the company site, see list below. There was just one new start last month however there have been a few registered on G-INFO so there could be some first flights in the near future.


Vans records the 10,000th flying RV, it had to happen sooner or later. The full press release is HERE.

Announcement from Claire @ BERINGER AERO

 

I would like to announce the release of new and very well documented wheel and brake kits for RVs (especially RV10 and 14 that have been our best sellers in the US this year)

The LAA Rally started September off to a great start with 104 RV's in attendance, where were the other 250? The weekend saw 833 aircraft fly in and 4000 visitors. Nigel and the marshalling team did the usual great job and we managed to get most of the RV's together in a couple of rows near the front.

 

Congratulations to Chris Marsh… He was commended in the Best Kit Built Category at the LAA Rally, and won Best RV too, for his beautiful blue and silver RV-9, G-ORVS. Mark Hughes was also commended in Best Kitbuilt, for his RV-7A G-JCIH.
