Vans' Air Force Totals Over 7,000 Airplanes
Terry Small of Prescott, AZ has become the 1,000th customer to
complete and fly an RV-7. His first flight brought the total number
of RVs complete and flown to 7088.
Terry Small's RV7
Ten years of off/on construction were interrupted by a year in
Afghanistan and five moves. But Terry stuck with it and on December
5, 2010 his RV-7 N174TD, took to the air. "What ... a wonderful
magic carpet ride." Terry says." I owe special thanks to my son,
who began the project with me and many times countered that 'what
have I gotten myself into' look on my face, and another thank you
to my lovely fiance, who was always there with help."

Since its introduction in 2000, the
RV-7 and its sibling, the tricycle gear RV-7A, have become one of
the best selling kit aircraft in history. At least 3000 more are
under construction all over the world.
