First RV12 SLSA N232VA

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

Saw the first SLSA version of RV12 today at Addison (KADS). Very sweet. It was just sitting on the ramp with a canopy cover. I was shocked to see it there.

A friend of my, provided the owner his transition training in a RV12. John gave him the needed hours prior to him taking possession of his SLSA. The owner lives in the DFW area.

Pretty sharp looking with those graphics... especially looking over the wing towards the side of the cockpit. Bet that plane is even better looking in person than photos!

Yep, very cool. Even with the generic canopy cover in place (as I saw it), the colors and design really 'pop'!

Yeah, that "Jetson's" canopy cover needs the good graphics to smooth it out a bit.
