Ava

Barry Kennedy of Kennedy Composites in Texas imports them and I am told the price with shipping is $710.00 and the next two shipments arriving in the USA are presold. (Information from a review of the plane by Dave Darling found in Thermal Topics the Modesto club newsletter.)

Sorry!
It is a paper newsletter and not online due to server problems. It is hoped to be online in the coming year. Mike

Vladimir Gavrilko is the manufacturer of the AVA he makes it for Barry Kennedy, who then sells it here in the states. Vladimir makes many models and has his own website and you can see his constructions methods there.
