First Flight Reports

Building an RV

We've worked hard to make aircraft homebuilding accessible to anyone by giving you clear and complete plans, matched-hole kits and ready-to-assemble parts that make it easy to get started. All sorts of folks from all walks of life have built RVs -- and you can too! In fact, at any given point in time hundreds of teenagers around the world are building our airplanes through various educational programs. These programs illustrate the versatility of our kits and broad spectrum of people who enjoy learning to build and fly their own airplanes!

The results are real!
