    Van's Aircraft Business Statement

    https://www.vansaircraft.com/2023/10...k-vangrunsven/
    I'm a little surprised this hasn't been posted here yet, given the impact that Van's has had in the homebuilt community......

    Over 61,000 views on this topic in the Vansairforce forum, probably redundant to discuss much here.

    Sounds like a golden opportunity for a wealthy enthusiast to either buy them up or form a partnership?

    It would be a textbook illustration of the old line about how to make a small fortune in aviation.

    scratch head, shrug, shim to fit.

    Flying an RV-12. I am building a Fisher Celebrity, slowly.

    Also true that superb Michelin star chefs don't always make great restaurant business owner/operators. Completely different skill sets needed. My thought was Van's finding an investor with superb skills in the business of manufacturing things at a profit.

    They obviously forgot one of aviation’s axioms…..Better, faster, cheaper. Pick two!

    Pick two... if you're lucky. Usually I get one, sometimes not even that.
