Kitplanes Editor in Chief Paul Dye was along for the ride as photographer Richard VanderMeulen shot photos for an upcoming flight review of the new RV-14 Taildragger from Van's Aircraft. Dye flew along with factory pilot Joe Blank, and they were accompanied by the RV-14 Tricycle gear version which has been flying for three years. Dye briefly flew the new model, and reports that it improves upon the already fine flying qualities of the original, and initial numbers developed during flight testing by Van's show that it might be slightly faster, even though it sports the smaller IO-360 engine instead of the IO-390 mounted on the tricycle gear plane.

Watch for a complete review of the new RV-14 taildragger  in an upcoming issue of Kitplanes Magazine!
