Development of Van's RV-12 of the aircraft was carried out by US aircraft manufacturers on the basis of the model aircraft Van's RV-9A, which appeared a few years earlier, and also became very popular. Nevertheless, Van's RV-12 aircraft was designed as a competing model that can surpass the flight-technical parameters of aircraft other American aircraft manufacturers, in addition to this, the company «Van's Aircraft» had every reason, as in fact, two aircraft were interested potential customers its low cost, although it was somewhat limited in terms of their operational capabilities.

Outside the aircraft design Van's RV-12 virtually no different from the aircraft prior versions of the products, however, are here and own structural elements, in one way or another degree affect on Flight aircraft characteristics, in particular, we are talking about aerodynamic performance.

His first flight of the aircraft model, Van's RV-12 made in November 2006 years, however, due to the fact that in terms of some characteristics of the aircraft did not reach the required, the project was sent back for revision, and, in fact, in the serial production of the aircraft is entered only in 2008 year, where he continues to reside and 2016 year. Issue aircraft Van's RV-12 carried out in two different versions - as a kit for self-assembly, as well as the already fully ready to flights of aircraft, which in turn allows future owners to save on cost, or on time.
