Thanks Don. I think it may have something to do with mine being called an RV-12 and yours being an AF-1? But I do like the way you tackle the job of building an aircraft.

rjtjrt: CASA discovered to their surprise that their legislation didn't actually allow builders to do their own W&B, which they had been doing happily for years. It normally requires the services of an official Weight and Balance Control Officer. Responding quickly to the situation, it took them only 8 months to hastily issue a temporary exemption to the rules so that builders can now do it legally (after first having completed a new and approved W&B training course, naturally). Having dealt with the immediate problem in record time, CASA can now start the major task of amending the original legislation at a more leisurely pace.

Default RV120035 Completed

https://www.dropbox.com/s/z38c5476j8...cture.jpg?dl=0

RV120035 completed it Phase 1 testing 6-3-15 thanks to Glenn Howell (Axsys Air), Dave Knutson, Jeff Hamlin, Darin Anderson, Jim Scott (Aircore), Troy Dorn (Gorilla Vinyl Wraps), Tony Tessitore, all the guys at Dynon. A extra special thanks to Art Loring my 82 year young A & P (and RV7 builder) who was by my side every rivet making sure I did it right and learned why.

I will now go on to learn to fly in this amazing machine…I built!

Ben

PS - just soloed in the plane that I built

Not first flight for the RV-12 but first flight for me flying an RV-12. Big RV smile...

Previous 1200 flight hours were exclusively in a Piper Cub.

I owned a ?46 Cub for 23 years and traded for 12058 with 50TT. Flew it right out of the box with just an hour transition with the owner/builder.

Default missed J-3

Congratulations! My RV-12 is about 3 months behind you. I started flying in a J-3 and have only 300 hrs. in it. Have flown all Cessna & Piper singles and many of the twins up to Boeing 727/737's. I still have a soft spot for the J-3
