Steve Hicks’ RV-14 | Shropshire, UK RV-14 #140413

Congratulations to Steve! He writes:

The adventure with G-STRV began in Oct 2017, when slow build parts began to arrive in Shropshire, UK, and my friend Tim Nicholas has been a faithful rivet partner throughout the build. The first flight took place from Sleap Airfield where G-STRV will live, and she felt “right” the moment I applied the power for take off.

Building the RV-14 has been a delight, teaching us both new skills and introducing us to new friends over the last 4 years 9 months. And the flight testing has revealed that Van’s has created something special – a rock steady, stable aeroplane combined with vibrant, precise controls – a clever combination.
