Our most frequently request for an installation is on a Vans Aircraft - BRS Aerospace answered with the installation kit you see today that incorporates key features to allow the kit builder to perform the installation. I am very proud of our designers and engineers who crafted such a well-thought out solution for the Vans RV-7 and -9." says BRS Aerospace CEO, Larry E. Williams.
BRS Aerospace will display the RV-9 installation on a fuselage at its booth during EAA AirVenture at Oshkosh next week.
