More Ready-To-Fly RV-12s From Van's
Van's Aircraft is now taking orders for its second batch of ready-to-fly RV-12 airplanes, the company said this week. Van's, which has sold more than 8,000 kits around the world, offered a dozen S-LSA versions of the RV-12 last year, and sold out the first day. The new batch of 12 sells for $123,000 each, fully equipped, or $115,00 for the base model. The aircraft components are built by Van's and assembled into an S-LSA by Synergy Air, of Eugene, Ore.
The RV-12 is powered by a Rotax 912 ULS, and equipped with a Dynon Skyview EFIS, LED lighting, an upholstered interior, ergonomic seating, and more. The fully equipped version comes with ADS-B, autopilot, and wheel fairings -- and the signature of Dick VanGrunsven, company founder, on the fuselage. Deliveries are expected to take about four to six months. Wally Anderson, of Synergy Air, told EAA he expects the production rate will eventually ramp up to about 50 airplanes per year.
