RV-9A


The RV-9/9A wing is longer and narrower than the wings of the RV-4/6/8 series, and uses a new Roncz airfoil. The increased span allows it to climb well on low power and glide a long way. The flaps are a long span, slotted, high lift design that allows the airplane to land slower than many primary trainers. A simplified constant-chord horizontal tail and large vertical tail are proportioned to work with the longer wing. The fuselage and cabin are identical to the RV-7/7A and there are the same sliding/tip-up canopy and trigear/tailwheel landing gear options.

The RV-9/9A uses a 118 hp Lycoming (taken from a Cessna 152) to power the prototype. The result was an efficient airplane with respectable short field capability, excellent cruise speed (165 mph). The airframe is engineered to accept the 160 hp Lycoming O-320.
The RV-9, a tail wheel version of the RV-9A made its maiden flight in 2002.
