RV Gathering @ KPYM and Vlad's Birthday Surprise! ...Dvalcik
RVs in the NE all converged on Plymouth MA, KPYM. Captain John
our host out did himself along with his Neighbors on either side of
his hanger. Great get together, good conversation, a lot of lies,
and fun for all.
Teen Flight 4 RV-12 First Engine Start ...greghughespdx
On Saturday, student members of the Teen Flight 4 class in the
Portland, Oregon area met for their regular weekend session at KHIO,
Hillsboro, OR. This class of young men and women has been working on
the fourth RV-12 being built by the program, which is part of the
Airway Science for Kids organization.
This weekend was a rather momentous one, as TF4's Rotax engine was
started for the first time. Mr. Jerry Van Grunsven, one of our
mentors, did the honors with one of the students, Matt, in the
cockpit to help. Afterward, all the students who were in attendance
posed for a quick photo to commemorate the occasion.
A few pics of Mt. Olympus peeking out of the clouds today, on the
Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.
Pylon Racing School Videos ...AX-O
Finally got around to looking at some video. Below are 2 short
videos. The join ups at Reno for the races are different than
the standard rejoins. There you always join to the outside.
This was my first lap around the Medallion course. I was "following"
my instructor Shane. He was flying Bob Mills' Super -6.
Beautiful RV-8 Flight Over the Rockies ...colojo
The smoke from the western wildfires finally cleared out a bit
and I enjoyed a nice, smooth flight over the foothills west of
Denver this morning. Captured a nice shot of the hills with the high
peaks in the background. Great day for an RV grin!
Next Generation RV Grin ...Rob 'Traynhr'
My son and grandson continue to experience the "RV grin" every
time they take the RV8 out! Today, my grandson wanted to go from 3
g's to 3.5 g's in turns. The guy is five years old and is already
emulating his dad's fighter pilot background. We've had lots of
planes and flown many more but never, ever have we had one that
brings us this kind of joy!
A2A Pics ...Closterman
Some great pics of my RV-7A. Now 42h on the hobbs and I truly
love it !! A dream come true!
