Y'all need to read things closer:

"A tailwheel version of the RV-14 is under development."

http://vansaircraft.com/images/open/14/14_flyer.pdf

Right there at the bottom of page 1.

"It's got a wheel on the front, which, unfortunately seems to be the Vans future and I do hope it isn't because of Elfen Safety liability problems."

They said there WILL be a tailwheel version in the near future

Vlad,
By the time all the RV-14 kits are available, your -9A will be worn out and it will be time to upgrade anyway

Not able to down load specs.

What engine is recommended? Speed, range, time to build? Flush rivets? More details please.





[ed. Specs that we have for now..... dr]

Saw the 14 today. I like it! The extra room will be a plus to all of us that are 6 feet and taller.

Default Van's web site

I have been trying to access Vans website to see what they have there about the new aircraft. However I only get a message saying the site is not responding.

Is anyone else having a problem with the website?

Jim

Update: Forget the question above, the problem has been resolved.

For cost issues, and the possible upcoming 180hp/no medical issue - What are the installation differences between a 180 hp 360 and the 200 hp 390? And - is Vans going to accommodate that?

I'm curious what Van's response is on this issue...

Wink NUTS!

You gotta be kidding me. I'm this close to finishing the -7A and now they come out with something even better?????? My wife is gonna kill me when I tell her that the current project is now obsolete. The -14 looks like the perfect plane, and they say the canopy is easier to build.
Gotta love Van's innovation and desire to always improve, but I don't know how much more improvement my bank account can take
