A little over fancy for me, but I'm old.

There seems to be a lot more information on the different models. I see that a lot of work has gone into the new site. It is fast too!

Great looking site. I noticed that the silhouettes that they have for the RV-7/7A look a whole lot like the RV-8/8A.

Cool

Web store is broke. Makes ordering parts difficult.

Wordpress is a great platform for something like this. I like the design. Now, go add the substantive content. It's a lot of work just to get to this point, but so far, existing content has just been repackaged with a very nice looking Wordpress theme. Still, it is a vast improvement!

Well, that's a marginally embarrassing. Thanks for the heads-up! Fixed.

I like it. The top nav is a bit annoying. I'd rather see it pinned instead of appear on scrollup. It's nice to see it brought up to modern design though.

I did find a typo on https://www.vansaircraft.com/building-an-rv/
