This month Evan's Aircraft is celebrating Women's History Month. Check out our slide show of some of the great women in aviation history.
In 1966 Bud Evans, our founder began engineering work on the first Volksplane or VP-1 as it is called today. Designed to be simple to build and safe to fly, the VP-1 is a fun and inexpensive aircraft that you can build in your home.
