Van’s RV-14

A new design from the world’s most successful kit aircraft manufacturer is always going to be big news, so when Van’s Aircraft revealed the RV-14 – a much bigger two-seater than their previous designs,  we were went off to Oregon, USA for FLYER August 2014 .

Is bigger really is better? Well, the -14 doesn’t handle quite as nicely as its RV-7 stablemate, but it’s got rock-solid handling while still being aerobatic, and will carry more payload further and in more comfort than the -7. Plus, being the most advanced kit developed by Van’s so far, any prospective builder should get in the air easier and faster.
