Evans VP-1 Volksplane

A picture of the Evans VP-1 Volksplane

The VP-1 was designed by W. S. Evans of La Jolla, California to be as easy as possible to build in a home workshop and with a minimum of tooling.  The final design is a boxy wood and fabric, single-seat sport plane.  The fuselage is nothing more than a plywood box while the constant chord of the wings makes all the ribs identical and eases production and assembly.  A Volkswagen engine powers the VP-1 and it was from this that the name Volksplane was derived.  The VP-1s ease of construction and docile flying characteristics have made it very popular and literally hundreds have been built around the world.
