RV-10 First Flight

First flight of N96KE was Tuesday 12/8/2015. This is my brother, Keith's, plane that I helped build. We used the Additional Pilot Program for the first flight. A 20,000 hour pilot with 1,000 in RV's went along with Keith. Airplane flies great. Equipped with Dynon Skyview, IO-540 and Constant speed MT-Prop.

Also, i would recommend getting as perfect a seal around the door as possible. IE, one piece. You will get an annoying whistling noise, otherwise. If you cant hear the whistling, dont worry about it. ;)

Glad to see you guys in the air. I dropped by CZL on Saturday, but didn't see you guys.
