Default RV-14 at Copperstate Fly-in

Barring any other snags that nature can throw in our path, the RV-14 should be arriving at the fly-in early afternoon tomorrow, and will be on display for the rest of the fly-in.

Talking Let the tour begin!

Hey I have a great idea. In order to end the year with a bang and start record sales of the RV14 how about a 49 state tour beginning here in Texas after Copper State. Kind of follow in the foot steps of the RV 1. Coming full circle so to speak. Let me be the first to volunteer to fly a few of those legs while you guys/Elfs begin knocking out those wing kits!

Jet guy, you are a market genius. That is a great idea.

We could get the old RV-1 Pilot Group to retrace their routes, but I think we'd all be totally lost inside that huge cockpit!!

John if it happens ( and it a great idea ) just remember to remind Colin (Rdog) that the RV14 is not his kit he purchased. You will have to keep a eye on him and the 14 should it visit KDTO

Thanks for bringing it down for the weekend. I'm impressed with what I saw and the questions that were answered.

I'm in, and if anybody can sell the idea to Van's, it's you.
(somehow, I don't think they will need somebody that lives 50 miles from the factory and that would take it to all the places it has already been around here, but I am still counting on you!)
It's an airplane. I would love to fly it.
