Sporty’s Sweepstakes airplane for 2014 is an all-new Van’s RV-12. This aircraft is the first factory-built airplane from Van’s, a leading designer of kit aircraft.
More than just a factory-built aircraft, Sporty’s RV-12 is part of Van’s Signature Series. This series includes the first 12 aircraft manufactured and features deluxe upholstery with memory foam seats, an autopilot and a custom paint scheme. These 12 aircraft feature Dick Van Grunsven’s signature on the side.
“The RV-12 is a breakthrough airplane, and it will change the way many think about LSAs,” says Sporty’s President Michael Wolf. “The airplane can carry two 210-lb passengers, 20 gallons of fuel and 50 lbs of baggage.”
The panel features the Dynon Skyview system, including a large 10” screen, GPS, Mode S transponder and autopilot. A Garmin SL-40 comm radio, Flightcom intercom and ELT round out the avionics suite.
“Another remarkable feature of the RV-12 is that its Rotax 912ULS engine delivers a 135 mph top speed on just 5 gallons per hour. It’s ideal for cross country trips or lazy weekend flights,” adds Wolf.
All Sporty’s Pilot Shop customers are automatically entered to win the airplane every time they order. Orders received between May 11, 2013, and May 9, 2014, are eligible to win this airplane.
