Van’s Aircraft has been creating highly successful designs for decades; more than 8,750 RV kits have been completed and are flying. Over 20,000 kits have been sold, cementing this Oregon company as the most successful kit aircraft company in history. In the last couple years, Van’s has enlisted Synergy Air to fully build and deliver their RV-12 Light-Sport Entry. Before the ready-to-fly project began Van’s had delivered more than 250 kit versions; the fleet of both kit and factory built RV-12s keeps growing. When that happens, many buyers — especially those who elected to purchase a factory-built ’12 — need quality places to obtain services for their airplane. Recently a Texas aviation powerhouse, US Aviation and their US Sport Planes division, was approved as a Factory Authorized service center for the RV-12. Company executive Scott Severen, a longtime recreational aircraft enthusiast and businessman, has been very successful at securing similar approvals from many of the top LSA manufacturers. US Sport Planes has also been a Rotax Service Center for several years and has more than 20 A&P mechanics on staff.
“Van’s Aircraft has recognized US Sport Planes of Denton, Texas,” reported the company. “We received good comments from our customers about US Aviation. We are pleased to have them assist our customers in the central U.S.,” commented Scott Risan, President and General Manager of Van’s Aircraft. RV-12 owners can expect services such as oil changes, conditional inspections, plus major structural repairs. US Sport Planes avionics shop is approved as a Dynon installation and service center.
“This is a natural flow for us as we service the bigger RVs already, and have a depth of knowledge of the LSA world. We are fortunate to assist RV owners and we strive to make it very convenient to have reliable work performed,” reported Severen who serves as Director of Business Development. US Aviation is based at the Denton Airport north of Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas. The business provides a full range for Light-Sport services as well as certified single, multiengine, and turboprop maintenance as FAA 145 Repair Station U9FR750K. Sport Pilots will appreciate that US Sport Planes is a LSA-friendly, full service FBO that offers exceptional amenities at Denton Airport (KDTO). The operation is open every day and sits outside the DFW Class B airspace. “We often provide return flights for customers bringing their aircraft in for service and your plane enjoys a complimentary wash with service,” assured US Sport Planes.
