Description The side-by-side RV-6 and its cousin, the tricycle gear RV-6A were introduced in 1986 and soon became the best-selling kit aircraft to date. Vans spent time with many RV-6/6A builders and listened carefully to what they liked and didn’t like about their airplanes. They acquired better tools and manufacturing capability, including digitally controlled punch presses. After fifteen years, Vans found they had the ability and knowledge to build a little better airplane and a far superior kit.Soon after the RV-4 proved that a two seat RV was a practical and exciting airplane, prospective customers began asking for a side-by-side RV.When the demand became too big to ignore, Van went back to the drafting board. Initially, he was reluctant, because he felt that a wider, and inevitably heavier, airplane would suffer in comparison to the sleek centerline seating airplanes. It wasn’t long before his quest for optimization surfaced again. Using what he’d learned from the RV-3 and RV-4, and striving in every way he knew to avoid losing performance, he designed the RV-6.He made it 43 inches wide and gave it a generous baggage compartment behind the seats. The wing on the RV-4 worked so well that there was no point in changing it, so he didn’t. The canopy was a forward opening bubble that closed almost seamlessly and, like all RVs, the visibility was superb. The landing gear was the same tailwheel arrangement that had worked so well on the RV-3 and RV-4. Since a side-by-side airplane was more likely to be flown cross-country, the fuel capacity was increased.The RV-6 made its first flight in 1985. When all the flight testing was done, Van was delighted to find that despite the wide fuselage, it was only three miles per hour slower than the RV-4! The handling qualities and STOL characteristics were so close that a pilot who couldn’t see the altered visual picture caused by sitting off the centerline probably couldn’t tell the RV-4 and RV-6 apart.The builder of this particular kit lost his medical and wishes to sell the kit to a builder who is able to finish it in the way he would have wanted it to be finished. Quality and craftsmanship were extremely important values during the construction of this aircraft. Aircraft is 90 % finished and requires a propeller and avionics.
