It's the end of the year, so it's
time for me to ask those who have been reading this webazine at the
rack for the past eleven months to please go through the checkout line so I
can buy some food, shelter and clothing (and insurance) for me and my
family. VAF is my full time gig, and like any small business if enough
people don't buy the products or services it eventually folds. The pie
chart has me worried a bit to be completely honest - the small slice is
donations. VAF isn't financially
sustainable at this donation level. It's insanely expensive to operate.
I try not to make too big a deal about the donate thing throughout the year,
as I'm sure you get bombarded from 10,000 other businesses. But, I need to ask
now so I can keep the business
afloat. Please pay if you use it.
Staying in Business for Another Year...the annual
is all the donate info (and bigger pie chart image). And thanks if you donate.

Wishing you and yours a happy, safe and RV-filled weekend.
Ready for its closeup ...Frank Dombroski RV-10
Shortly after completing my last -10, I had an offer I could not
refuse, so I sold it. I picked up a quick build kit someone else had
started and completed the project in 10 months. Build speed really
accelerates after a couple of the same projects. This one has the
full complement of Garmin G3X touch avionics. I used the same paint
scheme, as I never had the chance to get tired of it on the last
Done Lurking! ...Carl
I have a RV-12 kit that I got to the fuselage mostly finished
stage. I had been a sport pilot who went on to get my private
ticket. I own a S-LSA and had started building the RV-12 before I
bought the Gobosh. I went to the factory and did the demo flight in
the -14. Having lurked in the forum here for a bit, I finally
ordered my -14 kit. I can't wait to get started with the new build.
I race in the Airventure Cup race every year in my LSA. I am looking
forward to the increased speed of running the race in the -14!
My serial number is 140356 for those keeping track of how many are
RV Training Guide Powerpoint Briefings ...Vac
I'm developing powerpoint briefings for instructional or
reference use during transition training as a first step to
improving the resources available for folks either teaching in or
learning to fly RV's. The basic transition/instructor upgrade
syllabus contains four RV-specific briefings as well as basic risk
and error management briefings. The flying briefings include RV-type
Aerodynamics; Performance; Weight and Balance and Airworthiness
The first step is to develop the basic slides for each brief and
then, enhance them with appropriate hyperlinks, video, graphics,
etc. to improve them over time.
I've finished up Version 1.0 of the Aerodynamics Briefing:

Family Milestone: Tate Reeves Passes His Driving Test
Passed on first try. Susie heard the girl in front of him
in line say "Third time's a charm" (she had just passed on her third
try). Tate didn't hear the girl, and he's glad he didn't (was
about to start his checkride). Did I mention he has straight
A's. Very, VERY proud of this kid!
