Derwood eh? I used to live in Potomac and then Gaithersburg many years ago.

Anyway, I am based out of St. Mary's Regional (2W6) way down in Southern Maryland, right next to PAX River NAS.

Your profile says that you're interested in the RV-12 and have a flying 7A. I've got a 12 we can go up in. Love to have you come down some time.

Default Way to go Mitch

Hope you plan on flying down to Charley's at KJGG for lunch and take me up. Still haven't pulled the trigger. Gene at PHF is slow building one.

Many many congratulations Mitch!!!! This is awesome and I will look forward to your video. Have fun at Sebring but bring a jacket. Someone up north left the door open and some cold air wafted down here.

It's gonna be a little while before I can give demos. Being certificated under Experimental R&D which is the precursor to Market Survey/Crew Training like all of Van's factory airplanes, I have a 50 hour phase one flight test, plus a paint appointment next month. Should be up and working by mid March.


Thanks so much to you and everyone for the cheerleading. It is greatly appreciated.

Cold in sunny Florida, eh? I suspected as much with the colder the normal temps up here. Still warmer down there.
