This experimental RV10 aircraft started construction in John’s home garage in the fall of 2005. The aircraft as a kit is available from Vans Aircraft and is their only model that holds four passengers. It performs exceptionally well with a combination of good range and a cruise of 200 mph. John test flew the aircraft for the first time in June 2007 after approximately twenty months of evening and weekend building. Follow the slide show for a view of the construction project. His son Chris (bucking rivets) along with son Alec and daughter Emily all contributed to the family project.
