If Peter can get multiple builds going at the same time he should be able to bang out a lot of aircraft every year, the lack of volume is what pushes up the cost of most aircraft.

230KTAS on 7GPH at FL250 for $200,000 Australian? Never happen. It's simply far too good to be true. If it does come to fruition though, Van's will take a hit.


Work it backwards in USD:




15,000 GTN750


10,000 Dual 10" G3X system


750 for the GMC305 AP panel


290 G3X GPS Antenna


Leaving 104000 for the engine and airframe. A standard kit for the RV-10 costs 46,000 sans engine.


Looks great, I wish them well, but look at the Icon debacle and remember the old adage, if it looks to good to be true, it probably is...

also don''t forget Vans has got to protect his customer's semi-finished projects, lowering the price of the kits, especially the quick build kits only damages the builders who can't complete.
