Default Gorgeous RV-8 for sale

Really hate, hate, hate to do it, but it's time to sell the gorgeous RV-8, maybe the nicest plane I've ever owned. Why? Three spinal surgeries have limited me to 2 Gs, and I'm just not flying it enough. I can't bring myself to fill out the For Sale form on this site... yet... so email me for details.

O-320 with high compression pistons, constant speed prop, truly excellent workmanship (I'm the third owner), beautiful paint, full set of steam gauges.

PS. Spinal surgery number four is a real possibility, and I'll know about that soon. That's not helping, either.
RV-8 (steam gauges), RV-9A at KSAV (Savannah, GA; dual screen G3X with autopilot, GTN 650)
Previously RV-4, RV-8A, AirCam, Cessna 175

Default Oh no!

Sorry to see you considering sale. Even more sorry to hear you may be going under the knife again. Wishing you well from DC...

For anyone interested, this aircraft is exactly as described. It has been maintained by a professional with a discerning eye for safety. Someone is going to get a great -8.
