Customer # and name currently registered to the account for the airplane at a minimum. N number would be nice.
Ah. I did send an email to the webmaster with some info including N number (N249RV), though I didn't include the current owner's name (Grant Cassady) or the customer number (91672).

Is there a registry so people can see if their plane is on file at Vans?

As mentioned previously in this thread, the records are not publicly accessible but a quick phone call or e-mail (info@vansaircraft.com) is a way to check.

Getting close, but I won't make a 2017 cutoff .. maybe not 2018, but for sure she'll be flying by 2019. I'm sure I'll be 10k + 1. ;-)

I have heard in the past that (if I remember correctly) there was somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000 RV-6(A) empenage kits produced. If you add all of the other model counts to that (which I have no idea on the amounts) there is probably enough total emp. kits in circulation to complete an additional 15,000 airplanes above the nearly 10,000 we have flying now.

Default Any day now...

Plane is in the hangar waiting to go. Taxi testing completed last Saturday with no issues, tracked nice and straight. Just waiting for some decent weather here in Northern Illinois for the first flight!
