The European website for pilots who fly an airplane designed by VanĀ“s Aircraft

Get involved

This website is intended to enable European RV-Pilots to get in contact with each other - within a country but also across borders. There are many RV-Groups on Facebook or Whatsapp, but most of them are limited to a certain group of people and it is hard to get in contact with them or even know that a group like that exists.

Register your Email-Address, enter your homebase and a range. Whenever a new event comes up in that area around your homebase, you are going to receive an update by email. This way, it is easy to also schedule short-term meetings.

There will be no advertisement, no spam and your Email-Address will not be forwarded to anyone.
Not (yet) an RV-Pilot but still interested in these airplanes? Some events might also be suitable for guests.

    Experimental Days is an event dedicated to aircraft builders and restorers. Aircraft from all over Europe fly to Sanicole Airfield in Belgium for a weekend filled with aviation joy. All aircraft of any type are welcome to join! In 2017 and 2018 this event was temporary renamed to EFLEVA Days, to support the European Federation of Light, Experimental and Vintage Aircraft (EFLEVA), but since 2019 it is back under it's original name and concept.

  • RV Pilots meet Klietz-Scharlibbe
    -- Cancelled  --

    Friday 2020-06-05 until Sunday 2020-06-07 

    The hosts, Martina & Peter Richter, owners of the airfield, invite every RV Pilot to fly into EDCL at this weekend. There is no landing fee at this weekend for the attendees of this RV meeting. 

    The most pleasant advantage is to put up your tent under your RV's wing (it shouldn't be a very roomy tent, though). Accomodation is available. There are bath- and restrooms in a container for everyone. There is no restaurant or any kind of gastronomy on this airfield (There is an italien restaurant in a 4 km distance with delivery service on request, pizza etc.). Any food required for breakfast, coffeetime and dinner has to be brought in by our hosts. Therefore careful preparation is essential.
