Looks fantastic, Pete!

My most memorable training flight in the DA-20 was up to Big Bear. We went to 9500', the highest I'd ever been. The views of the mountains, incredible. I'll never forget the smell of the pine trees and fresh mountain air after we landed and popped the canopy.

My RV9A flew for the first time on November 14, 2015. As of January 6, 2016 I have 25 hours of my 40 hours of test time flown off. I am very happy with the finished product.

That is a really awesome looking aircraft. If it flies half as good as it looks you must be thrilled.

The FAA issued the 40 hour phase one because I have a non certified prop and engine. Thanks for the kind words and I still get excited everytime the weather is nice enough to fly and I know when I get off of work I can go to the airport (AXV) pull my plane out of the hanger jump in and learn something new about her.

It has a Catto prop and a Lycoming 0-320 that has had the sump replaced from another model.
