The popular Two Weeks To Taxi builder-assist program started by Glasair to help sell its Sportsman 2+2 homebuilts has now evolved into a standalone business and is expanding its service. The company will now allow those purchasing Vans RV-7 and RV-10 aircraft the opportunity to build their kits in about 14 days under the guidance and organizational direction of licensed mechanics and expert aircraft builders in a facility designed and equipped expressly for the purpose. Company officials say the expanded service should help more kits get built. "Between the two companies (Glasair and Vans), more than 14,000 aircraft kits have been sold, yet many remain unfinished," Michael Via, president of Two Weeks To Taxi, said in a news release. "We feel that providing a service focused on allowing builders to complete an aircraft in just two weeks is a remarkable opportunity." [more] The two-week program (it can take a little longer in some cases) has been operating for three years, and Via said those who have done it swear by it. He maintains that the program not only assures the project will get done, it solidifies costs and almost certainly results in a better airplane. The program complies with the FAA’s 51-percent rule, and the company is now taking reservations for those who will be getting their RV kits in early 2008.
