After forty years of supplying kits for amateur-built aircraft, Van’s Aircraft, Inc. stepped into a new world on May 31 when they delivered the very first certified, fly-away, ready-to-go Van’s airplane. Looking for military jet styling and performance with all the luxuries of civilian life? You may need look no further than the Saker S-1.
