Default The big question

Who gets first flight rights you or your partner? Fantastic job guys you have done a great rebuild/restore. You have proven to me that my restoration project will be done eventually too!

Default First Flight

Justin, funny you may ask. My build partner who also happens to be named Justin, did the honors and made the first "post build" flight today. As you can see, you can add yet another RV Grin to the list. The flight went great with just a few minor glitches to iron out. As for the plane, he said it flew like it was on rails. No major trim adjustments were needed.

Just took the wayback machine for a little trip into the VAF forgotten files.

Found these......

Kinda makes the finished product a little bit more impressive, IMHO.

Default Wow...

Absolutely exceptional..

I'm curious...did the inspector have any qualms about the "N" number placement?

Best,
