...a document in progress (feedback last several pages). If you feel the same let me know - I'll add it.
"... if Van's offered a (preferably) tandem, 2 seat, bush geared, Super Cub replacement, I would almost certainly order one sight unseen! Not to replace the RV-8, but to fulfill the low and slow sightseeing/back country exploring that are so appealing." --Jon Farley RV-8 N518RT
"...I love this type of flying. I would want to own, promote, fly a Van's product like this if it was available." -- Jay Pratt RV-8/6
"I will always be a Van’s loyalist and I will agree that they should try their hand at a more utilitarian model." --Dave Farmer
"...I stand in line with you on the RV cub! I built Crazy Woman (now at 52F!) and now building another-8... If Vans comes out with a -15 Cub, I’ll order the kit yesterday!
-- Thomas Henderson RV-8
"...I would still consider a high wing RV and put my S-21 on hold." --Vern Little RV-9A
"...I've been flying an RV-9A for nearly 10 years now......If I knew Van's was heading that direction, I may be in front of you in line for the tail kit." -- Carl Raichle
"...My vote goes for 'RV Super Cub'." -- Vlad RV-9A
"If Vans offered a product in that genre, it would be a no-brainer for me. That would be my next build." --mwardle7 (RV-12 flying)
“..I've been ready to build another aluminum riveted high wing for some time, I'd really like it to be from the RV family.” -- Bud Smith RV-8 (dbuds2 on VAF)
NEW "Ready to start a backcountry ship. Release that Vans unit or I’ll be forced to build one from brand “X”!" -- Blain Stumpf RV-8 N82ST
