VAF stays in business due to those who donate yearly and some wonderful advertisers

This honor system site strives to be a stress-free, civil place for fans of Van's RV kitplanes to virtually network and solve building issues.  The goal is that when you finish your RV and fly places, and meet in person the people you have talked with here, you will already kind of know them.  First and foremost this site is about good people.

N880AT is now a free bird! ...T. Albert

This morning test pilot Jeff Nielsen took my RV-8a QB up to compete the FAA required Phase 1 testing. While I completed much of the test flying in terms of hours flown and test items completed, Jeff flew the really demanding parts of the required testing.

N880AT total time 40.8 hours on the tach. Build time to date approximately 2,300 hours.
