206 RV-10's Are Flying Today
Back on May 29, 2003, Van's Aircraft
of Aurora, Oregon, announced the successful first flight of their
new kit aircraft, the RV-10. In August of the same year, they
handed the first RV-10 order forms across the counter to customers
lined up at the AirVenture airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
A little over six years later, RV-10 kit number 1000 has been
shipped to a customer in Irving, TX.
206 RV-10s are known to have flown, for an average of one new
airplane in the air every eleven days since it was introduced.
The RV-10 is a fast, roomy, fixed-gear four-place airplane with
performance comparable to many production airplanes with
retractable landing gear, bigger engines -- and far higher
prices. It is part of the well-known line of RVs, including
the RV-4, RV-6, RV-7, RV-8, RV-9 and RV-12. Altogether, 6,340
RVs have flown in thirty countries around the world.
