Vans RV-10

vans-rv10


The RV-10 will carry four FAA standard people, full fuel and sixty pounds of baggage. The cabin accommodates four full-sized adults. Both front and back seats will hold people 6’4" tall and provide them with truly comfortable leg and headroom. Composite gull-wing doors let occupants board from both sides.

The RV-10 is designed to fly well on various versions of the six-cylinder Lycoming O-540 engine, developing between 235 and 260 hp. The prototype was powered by a fuel injected 260 hp Lycoming IO-540. The RV-10 will cruise just under 200 mph.

Cruise speeds at 50-55% power are 175 mph. Even at gross weight, the RV-10 can operate out of very short runways and climb well at high density altitudes. The generous wing area, big slotted flaps and steel rod landing gear allow the RV-10 to land at virtually any small airport -- grass, gravel or pavement. The composite cabin top provides roll-over protection. The cabin interior is designed around Oregon Aero seats and seat cushions, (provided in the kit) which provide the best available impact mitigation and comfort.

The baggage compartment will accept 100 lbs of "stuff" loaded through the baggage door on the left side. If fewer than four people are traveling, the rear seat backs may be removed in a couple of minutes for extra baggage space.
