Latest Flyboy gascolator/filter added in 2017 for easy underbelly fuel filter removal and checking. Improves safety.

RV10 specific towbar, gust lock and canopy cover included. Also a plethora of spare parts available.

Maintained meticulously to CASA Schedule 5 by builder with fresh annual completed Feb 15, 2022. All Vans SB’s checked without problems.

The RV10 is almost as fast as a Cirrus SR22 at LOP with a reduced landing/takeoff roll and more forgiving at low speeds in the pattern. Maintenance bills would be under half that of a SR22. Useful load is slightly less than the SR22 at full fuel but with a much lighter airframe and 260HP engine the power to weight ratio is much better. Standard fuel tanks hold 228L (60 Gal) so endurance LOP is 5.5hrs.
