Good points Tony, there are clearly two valid points of view on this issue. Doug will append "RV-12iS" to the forum name shortly, we can keep considering splitting it off.

Off-thread issue, I see you're in Lacey, WA. I'm up in North Seattle; work in Woodinville, live in Mill Creek. Would love to connect some time to talk RV-12s. I've been considering attempting to locate other -12 and -12iS builders/drivers in the Seattle area with the idea of establishing a loose sort of builders/flyers group. Do you know if there are many others around here?

There are a good number of flying RV12s in our area and more building. I have been hosting an annual get together at PWT since 2012, usually in August, that I call an RV-12 Bull Session. We fly there, meet on the ramp in front of the Airport Diner to look at airplanes, then have lunch.

PM me an email address and I'll put you on the list for that and also can send you pictures and info of local 12s and pilots. I would enjoy a meet up. We can discuss that by email.
Feel free to delete this thread drift.

I'm with you in spirit but a little too distant for flying to attend.

Seeing the picture makes me wonder what the average age is for RV-12 ownership? I'm 65 and probably in the middle of the spectrum...
