Hey Rob,
Good to see you have kept the plane way from your father and are still enjoying it!

Yup. I always did love the way you painted your 3. Glad to see you're still enjoying it. Have you landing at any interesting strips lately. I seem to remember you flying it into a fairly "rustic" fly in, no?

Time flies when you're having fun! Hopefully I'll see some of the old KPTW gang at oshkosh this year.

The minimum number of planes one should own is one. The correct number is n+1, where n is the number of planes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of planes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

Default Rv3B in oz

Hi this is Steve from Cobram Aus.
Thank you Richard for posting this photo. I haven?t worked out how to do that.
I have flown 50 hours now and still learning. Before the rv3 l had done about 1500 hours in my Jabiru. This rv is no Jabiru. It is fitted with a io320 , duel pmags and a GA whirlwind prop. Empty weight or 820 lbs.
I often see 3000 FPM on climb out. I can cruise LOP at 160 kts burning 22 litres. Happy with that.
It has taken some time to master the landing and wheeling seems to suit me fine. I do fly from a 400 metre strip.

Default New RV3B

Just finished an RV3B - VH-VIJ. I now have 16 hours. IO-320, Christenson inverted oil, Smoking Aeroplanes smoke, Harmon turteldeck, ground adjustable Sensenich prop. Lots of fun to fly, but I still love my 10!
