This 2022 Van’s RV-14 Is a Homebuilt, Cross-Country ‘AircraftForSale’ Top Pick

The two-seat touring model filled a gap in the RV lineup that many observers had not noticed.

Each day, the team at Aircraft For Sale picks an airplane that catches our attention because it is unique, represents a good deal, or has other interesting qualities. You can read Aircraft For Sale: Today’s Top Pick at FLYINGMag.com daily.

Today’s Top Pick is a 2022 Vans RV-14.

When the first Van’s RV-14s reached the market about a decade ago, some fans of the company’s long line of aircraft wondered what made this side-by-side two-seater different from others in its fleet such as the RV-7. The two do appear similar, at least to the untrained eye. Closer inspection reveals that the RV-14 is larger, with a more powerful engine and more baggage space.

For people who like to draw comparisons between aircraft and cars, one might call the RV-7 a classic, compact, two-seat sports car while the RV-14 is more of a GT, or grand touring machine. Indeed, the larger aircraft’s wing is designed to operate efficiently on longer cross-country trips. While not all customers had noticed, Van’s felt there was a gap to be filled in the fleet somewhere between the RV-7 and the large, four-seat RV-10. Today the many pilots flying RV-14 appear to agree.    

This recently built RV-14 has an airworthiness date of March 22, 2022, and has logged 65 hours on the airframe, its Lycoming YIO-390-EXP76 engine, and  Hartzell two-blade, constant-speed propeller. The aircraft has a 50-gallon usable-fuel system.

Its panel includes a Garmin G3X IFR avionics suite with dual 10-inch screens, GMC 507 autopilot, GMA 245R remote audio panel, GNX 375 IFR navigator with ADS-B In and Out transponder.

Pilots seeking a high-performance, homebuilt aircraft with decades of development and market experience behind it should consider this 2022 Van’s RV-14, which is available for $298,000 on AircraftForSale.

You can arrange financing of the aircraft through FLYING Finance. For more information, email [email protected].
