RV-Pilots.eu

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.

  • Formation Days Trento

    This event is not just about formation flying, but also about getting together with other RV-pilots, good food and a great atmosphere. Participating in most formations as a pilot will require previous formation experience. But there might be options for interested pilots to ride along or do a formation introduction and some initial training. 

    If you plan to visit or participate, please contact us before flying in: info@rv-pilots.eu

    - Hotels in the vicinity (~ 2km)
    - Car-transfer might be possible ("Pilot-taxi")

    Beginning Friday afternoon: Catering (Breakfast Sat/Sun)
    Saturday evening: Live-music

    Other activities will be organised as well (sightseeing, guided tours in the historic center, ...) and there's a Yak-Meeting during the Fly-in so there should be plenty to see and do.

    The many "might" and "ifs" are due to all the Covid-restrictions and uncertainties and the airshow-part had to be cancelled, but there is a great effort by the organiser to make this fly-in happen! So let's make this the main RV-event in 2021!
