History[]

After RV-3 was introduced, Van wants to make a plane design with a two seats and can hold the same performance as the RV-3. This is when the RV-4 was created. It was heavier than the RV-3 but at August 1979 (It's first flight), Van was amazed by the results. It was even better then what he expected.
