Default C-FDTQ has a CofA

Had final inspection a month ago and got the C of A from Transport Canada in the mail today - Wooohooo!

Two things that were done to plans needed changing - vertically mounted fuel filter changed to horizontal (to eliminate a potential vapour lock in the 180deg loop above it) and flap bottom rod end bearings from Vans "unibody" to Aurora with bolt & safety washer.

Paint is DIY SW Acryglo. Scheme is sons design.

We have a professional test pilot lined up for the first flight, and my & sons training. Test pilot owns & flys a RV-3.

Working on the POH and flight test cards. Weather permitting hope to have air under the tires and the RV grin before to long.

Default Wow.

That looks great Dennis! Love the paint.

What airport do you have it at? Just arrived in Essex an hour ago for New Years. Would love to see it if you have time.

Default Wow!

Dennis,

It was great meeting you yesterday and taking the time out of your day to show me your -8.

You have a fantastic looking aircraft and I hope my build can rise to the same quality as yours.

All the best in 2017 and good luck with the flight testing!

I'll be bugging you for a ride once you get your 25 hours off!

Cheers,


Don

Don,

It was a pleasure meeting you and your brother yesterday. It's always good to visit with a fellow RVer. I envy your flight experience. Have a happy and safe New Year and good luck on finishing your 8.

Until we meet again,
Dennis
