N214SW Painted
 
Well N214SW made it out of the paint shop at Glo Custom and Doug took some pics and put it on the front page. I'm going to pick it up tomorrow. Check out the pics on the front page of VAF.

Hi Stoney,
Fantastic looking plane you should be very proud.
I like your interior colour , what colour is it? The finish of the interior looks good with those seats and the finishing touches you have made..
What are the plastic boxes on the side walls down near the seats to excuse my ignorance?
Great job and motivation for those of us still building.

I have to check the color of the interior. The plastic boxes are drink holders and work great. Weather keeping us from picking her up right now.

Thank you. Scheme Designers did the design and Glo Custom did the paint. I had Walt at Exp Aircraft Services on the field at 52F do the prop balance and IFR cert while it was there and WOW, what a difference. The engine is so much smoother. Now it's time to just enjoy, travel and tinker.

ZU-IIS First RV14A to fly in Africa
 
Somehow I became involved doing the inspections on this project. My friend Larry Beamish did the maiden flight and I have done some of the other test flights. Below is the RV in front of my house/hangar.



Below is a picture of the panel. Dual Skyview.



Right now it has 19 hours on the Hobbs and I am planning to complete the test phase within the next two weeks. Note that we only have to do 25 hrs over here.

It is really a nice plane to fly :D

czechsix 01-15-2017 11:50 PM

Looks nice, is that the stock Vans canopy? In the picture it looks darker than what I've seen on other -14s.

Janekom 01-16-2017 02:03 AM

It is the one that came with the kit. It is just the picture.

I know neither of you are selling any time soon, but I'm curious what you would price your sale at if you were. Reason I'm asking is to determine if I should wait a year or two for more 14's to hit the market and become available to purchase or if I should just get a 7 now.

You could just roll up your sleeves and build one, you know. It's fun! :)

I'm not selling, but I would "guess" the going price for a clean IFR RV-14 would be in the range of $170-$185K. I've seen some RV-7s in the 130-140K range.

ricardoramos 08-21-2017 08:20 AM

We had finished our RV-14A a few weeks ago and it's waiting for experimental aircraft airworthiness inspection. This is the first RV-14A in Brazil.

PR-ZNV has dual screen, 10" G3X Touch EFIS with VP-X Pro.

That is one beautiful plane! Can't wait to hear how she flies!

While I finished and first flew my 14 last June, I just finished getting it painted last month.

Here are the beauty shots.

Very nice Bob! Now you got me thinking red instead of blue.

Here is the mostly Garmin panel I posted a picture of in the "Show us your RV-14 Panel" thread awhile back. Here's a link to that post http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...0&postcount=10.

Very nice - not far from what I'm planning (for now at least - avionics are a ways out....)

N314KC gets new clothes
 
N314KC was the 24th RV-14 completed. Her first flight was March 8,2017 and she now has 190 hours. Last Friday, I picked her up from the paint shop.







Paint scheme was designed by Scheme Designers.
Painting was at Flying Colors of Texas in Gainesville, TX.

Now, for some serious flying!

Jimbot 03-04-2018 07:32 PM

Wow - that is a GREAT-looking paint scheme!!! Congratulations on such a wonderful bird, both inside & out.

N947RV Just reached her 1 year birthday, has 120 wonderful hours and has been to Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Florida and North Carolina. Van's designed a great airplane that is economical, comfortable and a wonderful traveller.

Carl: great to hear. Your blog / website is one of my "go-to's" when I'm stuck or have need inspiration!

Bootscooter 08-05-2018 07:53 AM

Just so Happy how this
 
Still buzzing from finishing RV14, can't speak highly enough for the quality of the kit and plans, this aeroplane is good for GA, it gets a quality build on the ramp to a larger audience. I can see a big future for this model.

Finally got a good photo to share
 
Completed for a while now (September 2017). Plane was vinyl wrapped for about a year. I removed the vinyl back in August 2018 and painted it. Here she is!




Bavafa 10-10-2018 08:41 AM

Beautiful..... congrats on the new paint job.

Just curious if you didn't like the wrap or some other issue that changed to paint.

czechsix 10-10-2018 11:48 AM

Looks nice Jared! Also curious why you decided to switch from vinyl to paint.

Who did your seats?

algrajek 10-11-2018 03:05 PM

Beautiful airplane! Inside and out!
