Started instrument training in it yesturday. Two trips across the country dodging weather is enough for me to get this ticket under my belt.

Bryan & Sherri Wood's 9A
N994W first flew August 18, 2004 after LOTS of time spent in the garage. She is powered by an Aero Sport 0-320 D1A swinging a Hartzell C/S prop with a Lightspeed ignition on one side. Numbers meet or exceed what Van publishes, but it was supposed to with Bart building the engine to do exactly that. There have been some teething issues we're working through but are down to the smallest things now. Sometimes after unlocking the hanger and catching the first glimpse of her in several days I'm still taken back by the scope of what we've accomplished. For those flying already you know what I'm talking about, and for those still putting in your time building you are laying the foundation to experience this wonderful feeling in the future. While usure if I would ever take on a project like this again, I'm sure glad that we did it once. The support of my wonderful wife throughout the building helped to ensure completion and was critical several times when I was truly burned out. Now our 9A is always exactly how we leave her when she is put away after flight. She is full of gas, clean, and ready for our next outing!

Well, I wouldn't call it finished, as I still have the gear leg fairings and wheel pants to install, but she's flying!!

Well, after 2.5 years of polishing and 350 hrs of flying, I am always looking for a new product to make my airplane maintenance easier.

My latest research came up with this very cool new stuff that comes in a can...

It's called P. A. I. N. T. :eek:

Nice Andy

I saw your airplane at the Golden West this year and thought "Wow" to myself at the nicely polished skins. Now seeing this you brought the same thing to mind.

Enterprise ready for OSHKOSH!
Here are the first photos of my RV-9A on the runway out in front of the paint shop on July 23, 2005. Serial #90622 was the 155th RV-9 or RV-9A to fly according to the Van's Aircraft "Hobbs Meter" when my first flight was posted there.
