I bought my 9 when i had 100 hrs as PP and have flown the RV 300 plus hrs since ,Its a blast to to fly and has been very useful for my CC travels. You need to buy it IFR ready because im trying to upgrade mine now and its ridiculous expensive , plus like me your not the builder so you will have pay someone to help you out. With everything ive done to the plane since i bought it , engine MOH , Basic glass Avionics , Pro paint , ect. ect.
i am now WELL above 75 g . Lesson learned , but i have i plane that im happy with now except im still not IFR .... and wont be til i dump so more cash . Im in pause mode trying to justify it now.

Don't waste any time or money on an 0-235 powered 9. You would probably be disappointed. They fly but do not perform as a 9 should. I took an owner up in my old 0-320 powered 9 and he said "now I know how the plane was intended to perform" With an 0-235 even a light 9 does not feel as if it performs as well as the LSA RV-12.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm used to a PA28-140, so I'm sure an O320 -9A be a huge step up in performance.

Default Van's RV-9A

I'm just getting ready to sell my RV-9A, but the price is not even close, perhaps because it is a loaded VFR airplane. Here is the text of the ad. Contact me at tommuller@roadrunner.com if you are interested and I will send some pix.

2007 Vans RV-9A, Mattituck/Lycoming 0-320, 160 hp, TT Hobbs 816 hrs. / Tach 684 hrs. Flown regularly by original builder/owner since new. E-Mag/P-Mag ignitions, Vetterman tuned exhaust and custom Catto prop make this one of the fastest RV-9s topping out around 186 kt TAS. At 6,500-10,500 msl and 135 kt TAS, delivers under 6 gpm burn or 26 statute mpg. Rate of climb @ Vx 1,400 fpm, stall @ Vso 43k kt, takeoff 475 ft., landing 450 ft. Gross TO weight of 1,850 lbs. and empty weight of 1,081 allows 553 lbs. net payload with 36 gallons full fuel and 740 nm range at 55% with 30 minute VFR reserve. Glass VFR cockpit with Dynon D-100 EFIS / D-120 EMS & 2- axis autopilot, Garmin 496 GPS. Other avionics: Icom 2000 VHS, Garmin GTX-320 transponder, PS Engineering PM3000 stereo intercom, ACK 406 mhz ELT. Imron paint, fresh upholstery. All logs and manuals.

This is a rocket but also a great cross-country machine. Most of the hours were to carry my wife and me several times across the US over the last ten years. We hate to sell it but I have given up my medical and am going Sport Pilot. Based at KLEW. $78,000.

I am building another airplane, so if there is anything in this plane you donít want that I can use, we may be able to negotiate a price reduction that will allow you pick your own configuration.

Thank you. I'm working on purchasing another plane, but haven't worked out all the logistics yet.

Obviously a lot of variation in configurations, engine choices and time, paint, interior, etc. can cause a wide price variation that's logical.

When I submitted the post I was looking for a painted, flying airplane with a 6-pack of steam gauges, a radio, transponder, a fixed pitch prop and a mid-time Lycoming. I knew it was on the low side of what's out there, but was comparable to other options I was considering like a PA28-181.

The ones I've found in that <=$55K price range also benefit from lower parts and kit pricing being built in the 2004 or 2005 time frame.

I also owned a PA28-140 prior to building my RV7. The maintenance costs and the upgrade restrictions is what convinced me to build & I have no regrets.

FWIW, unless you need a 4 place airplane, the Archer will cost you a lot more $$$ for maintenance & upkeep going forward. And the restrictions when you are unable to do panel upgrades, autopilots....

The 55k price range for a RV9 is low, but if you wait it out, you may come across one.
