VANS RV FLY IN-KITTYHAWK 2014
By Willie Bodenstein
Like the rest of the world South Africa is besotted with RV's. Dick VanGrunsven design of arguably the most popular and successful kit planes in the history of aviation has found a ready market on the tip of Africa with hundreds flying and probably almost the same number being under construction. In fact, RV's has opened a complete new aviation industry with a large number of professional builders offering their service to those who simply do not have the time to build their own.
On Saturday 13 September a mixed bag of forty three RV's flew to Kitty Hawk Airfield on the Eastern Side of Pretoria. The grass apron was packed with 4s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s and 10 and 12s. Kittyhawk that boasts probably the best clubhouse and restaurant in the country is the ideal venue for a morning breakfast fly in.
