You Can Fly Home This Gorgeous RV-10 Airplane. AOPA Sweepstakes

Have you entered the AOPA sweepstakes for this gorgeous RV-10? Every year AOPA gives out a free  airplane to one lucky winner.

It’s just in time for this year’s winner to be announced and there is still time for you to enter the Sweepstakes.

The RV-10 is one of the best performing single engine 4 seater aircraft in civil aviation

This airplane can go head to head with a Cirrus SR22 in comfort, build, speed and range. Even one that is fully loaded. The only features you may not get in the RV-10 is may be a standard AC unit or a parachute system. But who are we kidding? this is an experimental airplane, therefore you can add as many features as you want.

Performance wise, the RV-10 fitted with a Lycoming IO-540 260 horse power engine. Cruise speeds at up to 200 mph and climb at an outstanding 1,950 feet per minute. Stall speed is merely 57 miles mph. For those in aviation, that’s roughly 50 knots. That’s an impressive achievement for this airplane. The RV-10 will also fly non-stop up to 1000 miles.

To purchase a ready built RV-10 like this one will cost you anywhere from $200,000 to $300,000 depending on build and finishes. If you opt to build one your own RV-10 aircraft like most owners do, you’re looking at a little over $100,000 for the entire kit, engine and avionics. This is the perfect airplane for a family guy or someone who flies on long trips with friends and baggage.
