William "Bud" Evans Founder of Evans Aircraft Company
A Note from Bud’s Son Pete
My father’s life long enthusiasm for aircraft design, and the energy and creativity that he put into designing, building and flying the VP-1 motivated me to continue the legacy of Evans Aircraft long after his passing. To see his dream still flying in different parts of the world is a tribute to his ideal of well-designed, inexpensive to build and fun seat of the pants flying. Moreover, it is rewarding to see how builders have continued to honor his primary design structure while imaginatively modifying and customizing the secondary structure to their specifications.
