Ron and Michelle Singh’s RV-12iS | Independence, Oregon RV-12iS #120535

Congratulations to Ron and Michelle on the first flight of their new RV-12iS. They wrote to tell us:

After many enjoyable years of construction, a near perfect plane took to the air on a near perfect autumn evening in Oregon! What started out as an RV-12 nine years ago emerged as an RV-12iS equipped with a Rotax 912 iS Sport fuel injected engine, dual Dynon HDX1000 screens, 2-axis auto-pilot, wheel fairings, dual landing lights, full upholstery and base/clear coat paint.

As probably many builders experience, our RV-12 construction went slow due to work; a move to the Independence Airpark; overseas travel after retirement, managing a home and farm in India, and other life distractions. Then came Covid-19! There’s some good in everything… you simply have to seek it out. The silver lining that we saw in this terrible pandemic was our opportunity to stay home, lock the doors, and focus on getting the plane built… and we finally did. The primary stripe in the aircraft paint scheme is now… Silver!

Thanks Van’s for designing an awesome plane and providing such great support!
