My new to me RV6A, say hello to Tweety Bird
 





After starting a 7A approx 7 years ago and throwing in the towel early, I finally was able to pull the trigger on a flier. 2004 6A. 0320. First time aircraft owner. Now I just need to get transition training. 15hrs of it :). Excited/nervous/ in disbelief I own and airplane now. Anyways condition inspection due in July. So while I wait on transitioning, Im going to rip into her with an A&P and hopefully some help from local FYV guys and get to know every nut and bolt ans system. Wish me luck. Now I get to start really donating to Mr Doug.

Congratulations. You own a time machine! Some of us want to build, some want to fly, some want to or need to do both. Fly often, don?t let it sit!

Thank you builders!!!

Welcome! I am just finishing my first Condition Inspection. Here is a checklist I used made by one of the very active contributors on this site. It really helped me out. Hope it's helpful you and your Mechanic too.

Charlie is a character. He held off about 5 other cash buyers as I worked with my bank/insurance and all. I think he really wanted to be able to still see her fly. Everything really just came together on this. Was about to buy a 6A from Delaware, but no hangars here in FYV or close. The city let me take over lease on Charlie's and effectively jump 27 spots on the list.
