We encourage you to check with those who are already building or flying RVs. RV builders often band together to provide each other assistance in building and flying their aircraft. There are currently about twenty builders groups world-wide. For more information, please visit the
Builders Groups page.
Other RV Builders
With more than 8000 people building and flying RV aircraft, it might surprise you how many might be near your area. Many an RV builder has been surprised to learn of an RV project under construction in his or her neighborhood.
Upon request, Van's Aircraft will provide you with the names of other RV builders near you. Simply provide us with a list of zip codes in and around your area, and we will send back a list of names and addresses. We encourage you to check with those in your area. Many friendships have developed around RV projects.
For those still considering an RV project, contacting a builder near you can be an excellent way to get a hands-on introduction to the building process.
