Van's Aircraft Total Performance RV Kit Planes

Blue Skies, Joe

Van's regrets to announce the death of our friend and colleague Joe Blank after a courageous struggle against cancer. He was 59. Joe worked for Van's since 2006 in builder support and IT administration, and was a highly regarded employee here. He completed an RV-6 in 2004, and flew it extensively, as well as indulging his other interests of sky-diving and mountain biking. He was especially enthusiastic about formation flying as part of the West Coast Ravens, and became Van's go-to pilot for our air-to-air photo shoots. He'll be greatly missed, not only here, but also by the many customers whom he met or assisted over the years. Our condolences to his wife Trish and son Jamie. Blue skies, Joe.
