Arlington, Washington, July 13th, 2007—The unique Two Weeks To Taxi program is now available for the Vans RV-10 and RV-7, in addition to the Glasair Sportsman 2+2.
"Glasair and Vans aircraft are the most popular kit planes in the world," says Mikael Via, President of Two Weeks To Taxi, LLC. "Between the two companies, more than 14,000 aircraft kits have been sold, yet many remain unfinished. We feel that providing a service focused on allowing builders to complete an aircraft in just two weeks is a remarkable opportunity."
Glasair launched the Two Weeks to Taxi concept almost three years ago and immediately had a long waiting list of builders ready to take advantage of the new time-crunching concept. Tremendous demand for this innovate program has prompted Glasair to create a separate company, Two Weeks to Taxi, LLC. This new company will focus exclusively on assisting builders of various kit aircraft types in rapidly completing their aircraft while Glasair Aviation will focus on production and support of the Glasair, Glastar and Sportsman 2+2 line of kit planes.
Participants in the Two Weeks to Taxi program enter into a high-tech build center and are assisted by a team of experienced mechanics who guide and oversee the daily progress. In addition, they have exclusive access to a variety of tooling, organization and quality assurance measures unavailable anywhere else. (Airplanes constructed at the Two Weeks to Taxi facility comply with the FAA's 51% rule for owner-built aircraft.)
Builders who have completed the program openly state that, for them, Two Weeks To Taxi is the only way to build an airplane because the process not only provides certainty in terms of cost and completion but also a level of confidence and satisfaction that is not available elsewhere. Pilots select their instruments, avionics, engine and propeller, and then choose their own paint scheme after completion of the program. All Two Weeks to Taxi program feature all-glass cockpits and other state-of-the-art instrumentation.
The Two Weeks to Taxi program is now taking reservations for RV deliveries in the first quarter of 2008 on a first come, first served basis. For more information, visit the company’s website, www.TwoWeeksToTaxi.com, or call 877.798.TWTT (8988) or 360.435.4444.
