Van’s Aircraft Lawsuit Dismissed »

A $35 million lawsuit filed against Van’s Aircraft, characterized by Van’s as an attack on the kitplane industry as a whole, was settled by the parties late last year. In a press release issued Wednesday, Van’s said the case was dismissed, which is accurate, though it omitted the reason for the dismissal. Van’s Aircraft told AVweb they were unable to comment on the matter. The lead plaintiff was a passenger in a Van’s RV-10 kitplane who was severely injured when that aircraft crashed after departure from Toledo State Airport, Oregon, in 2014. The plaintiff’s four-year-old daughter was also killed in the crash. More
