RV-6 Approved for Launch
This RV-6 was started in 1994 by Denny B. and I purchased it from him in July of 2016. The first 15 months the project just set in my shop for 2 reasons. One was I really didn't have a clue where to jump in and get started. Second, was I only had a light sport license for a powered parachute. I took those 15 months and researched where to get started using VAF (which has been very helpful). I also bought a light sport fixed wing and used it to get an endorsement for LSA fixed wing flying. Then built time towards the private ticket while building on the RV-6 and earned my private pilot license earlier this year. Well today the RV-6 was approved for flight. Next week I go to Okeechobee, Florida to get transition training with Jan Bussell. Obviously, I am very excited. Thank you to VAF members for your help and to Doug for this great tool.

Great work!
Looks great - your inspector does not seem quite as happy as you do! :D

I had never heard of Hallsville, so when I looked it up here's what Google gave me:

It must be a nice place!

Congrats! It's always encouraging to see another 6 builder curtailing a second-hand project. Hoping to follow your shoes in the next year on my '92 vintage kit.

Looks great!
You've done a great job. Hoping to follow you in the near future with my RV6.
