First Flight ...Randy Pflanzer RV-12
N417E became airborne this morning. Jim
Winings did the honors. This was his 14th first flight and he has
now completed a first flight in all of Van's designs except the -14.
The wind kind of kicked up so I will wait until tomorrow morning to
make my jaunt. I've waiting 6 years, one more day won't hurt.
Everything worked great. Heavy left wing and right rudder tab
needed. Otherwise, she flew great.
