Video of Sporty's sweepstakes RV-12

We'll have more to show off in a few months, but so far we at Sporty's are having a blast with the RV-12 we'll give away in May. It's a great airplane.

Here's a quick video we threw together:...

I agree - the RV-12 is the airplane that many 172 buyers should be buying. More fun to fly, burns mogas, 4.5 gal/hour. It's the new standard for recreational airplanes, and I'm thrilled Van's is...

Agreed! The first step to solving our problem is hiding in plain sight - our airports scream "go away." Time to start viewing them as storefronts in a mall and not prisons.

Van writes an article on the future of GA

Thought the VAF crew might like to read Van's latest article, just published on Air Facts. He writes about how to make a stronger GA and what role his airplanes can play. Good reading:...

Mounts

I agree with the suction cup - works great on the canopy for cockpit shots.

For external shots, this mount works really well out on the wing tip: http://www.sportys.com/PilotShop/product/19035

Great OSH trip

Thanks to everyone who visited our Sporty's Sweepstakes RV-12 in the Van's booth at OSH. We had a blast flying it up there, and it was really an honor to have it in the Van's booth all week.

What...

Factory RV-12 "owner" right now

Been flying one of the first 12 factory RV-12s and am in love with it. Great handling (what else would you expect?), excellent performance, good load-carrying capacity. I have lots of good things to...

This plane will be in the Van's booth at OSH, too. Stop by and check it out--the paint jobs on these Signature 12's are really amazing.

Getting to know our 12

We've had a lot of fun the past few weeks getting to know our Signature RV-12. Flies great, easy to check new people out in.

Here's a quick video we made (nothing special):...

Could be me, but I don't understand the terminology on this. TRK to me says track, not heading. And (I think) what it does in TRK is to follow the heading bug. Small thing, but it's needlessly...

Visibility is spectacular - in all directions. The airplane also did really well in the wind. There were some pretty good crosswinds in Wyoming, and it was solid.

We will take care of everyone's...

Signature RV-12 flies home

So we didn't earn it like the rest of you guys (it's a factory-built RV-12), but we are really excited to fly a Signature RV-12 home this week. N237VA will be the 2014 Sporty's Sweepstakes airplane....
