The building process was a great learning experience but flying it is so much better. We received the pink slip on Nov. 12, 2013, and today we got it back from the paint shop.

A big thank you to all the guys at the Southeast Ramp at Sanford, FL KSFB, technical support from Vans Aircraft, the Vansairforce.com search button that gave me invaluable direction on how to build it better and more importantly was a guide showing what works and what doesn?t work. This depth of knowledge is a huge advantage we have building now learning from those that have passed this way before us.

The paint scheme design was a collaboration effort between my wife Terri and Matthew Sample matthewsample2 at gmail.com. Matthew provided the much needed computer design skills necessary to create this unique paint scheme. The aircraft was painted by Joe Dinolfo of Hawk Aircraft Painting in Tampa, FL. Joe was a great guy to work with throughout the entire paint process. His team really brought this airplane to life.

Like most of us, I feel there is little chance of completing something this big without the support and encouragement of my family and especially my wife Terri. We are now looking forward to flying to a lot of great places and meeting new people in the process.

Nice Six C&T,
Curious....0-320/Hartzell? Empty weight? Performance so far?
Stop by the Swamp (FD33) anytime or knock some of the dust off my hangar roof...

Congrats!

Good looking airplane, Kevin. Hopefully it gives you many years of joy.

I'm the guy that purchased your 496.
