For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards,for there you have been and there you will long to return.

A VAN's RV-10 Building Log

An RV-10 is a single engine land airplane that can comfortably carry up to 4 adults and their luggage. This airplane has handling characteristics comprable to some production single engine airplanes and even light twin. Furthermore the performance matches or surpases other kit models and production airplanes of the same category. RV-10's are designed to accept various versions of the six-cylinder Lycoming O-540 engine.
Overall this is a very robust airplane that will take me and my family on long trips to who knows where to see who knows what and do it safely.

The FAA requires amateur airplane builders to keep a log of all the building phases of their airpalne. This website is designed for just that purpose and to give other builders easy access to my screw ups :]
Currently we are in the planning phases and as such the website is not complete. But feel free to come back often and check out updates.
In the meantime check this video of my friend and me doing some aerobatics in his RV7A.
