Niner Seven Kilo Echo Flies
After 8 years of construction, N97KE, a RV-9A flew Saturday June 5th for the first time. It was built by my brother, Keith, and me. First flight occurred at Calhoun, Ga (CZL). Flight was uneventful with some minor squawks, most of which were taken care of that afternoon. The airplane is equiped with a Advanced 3500, Garmin 495, and a Zaon. Weight came in at 1096 Lbs. The fun begins. For those who know me-NO SOY BEANS were hurt in this endevor.
