Show us your odometer!
well it only took 13 years and 4,000+ hours to turn over that many miles. thought to take a look because i knew i was getting close. it has been an incredible plane! it has never let me down and the two lycoming engines have been just as good. i hope this is motivation to all building and looking to get an rv. it is the best bang for the buck. :cool:

Wow that's great Turbo, hope to see ya back at N40 Sky Manor soon. I've got 3600 more hours to catch you.

There are a lot of 50 year old planes out there that haven't flown that many hours. Sure gives you a feeling of how enjoyable it is to fly an RV.

That needless taxi time does bring down the total. The average ground speed is 132 knots.
