Van’s Aircraft is resuming limited scheduling of demonstration flights at its Aurora, Oregon headquarters (KUAO) and at our East Coast representative’s location at New Garden Airport (N57 – Chester County, PA). Please note that we are not currently taking walk-in requests for demo flights – all appointments must be pre-arranged and confirmed and are offered on an as-available basis.
Our factory is still closed to the public and factory tours are not available at this time.
East Coast Appointments for Demo Flights/Transition Training
We will be resuming demo flights and transition training at the New Garden Airport, PA location in the RV-10 and RV-14A aircraft. Our East Coast rep and instructor is Joe “Zack” Czachorowski, who can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please email him to schedule appointments for demo flights and transition training, which will resume beginning May 17th. Note that transition training appointments will be given priority over demo flights.
West Coast Appointments for Demo Flights
To schedule demo flight at our headquarters in Aurora, Oregon please email email@example.com with the aircraft you wish to demo and the dates you are available. We provide demo flights the RV-7A, RV-10, RV-12iS, RV-14 and RV-14A from our headquarters location. These aircraft are also used for training purposes, so not all aircraft are available for demo flights at all times.
Note that transition training with instructor Mike Seager resumed in Oregon earlier this year. To contact Mike for transition training, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional transition training instructors and resources can be found on our web site’s RV Fight Training page.
Important: Specific aircraft availability, pilot availability and weather conditions are the final determining factors in whether or not we will conduct a flight on any given day, and as such all flights are subject to cancellation up to the last moment should conditions or circumstances dictate. In the event health-related mandates modify or the availability of demo flights and/or transition training, we will make schedule adjustments as required.
