Default OO-156, first RV-9A flying in Belgium

Kit # 91031 was transformed into an RV9A during seven and a half year of building, enjoyable and instructive.
Lycoming XIO-320 D1A, MT three blade CS prop, Dynon Skyview 10” & 7 “ with accessories, Garmin GMA 240, SL30, GTX 328; empty weight is 1121 lbs.
First flight was around 20pmon May 26, 2012 at EBZR; straight and level; no heavy wing.
Thanks to Vans, several good friends, some new ones, and especially my wife Maria Woestenburg.

Jef Vervoort, Belgium.

.



First take off



And off course, the inevitable RV-Grin !

Default Looks Great! Congratulations on that and being first

Best wishes for many fine flights to come.

What are your requirements for "Phase I", testing, or completion of signoff?

We like the paint job,.. very similar to ours.

The "Jef Vervoort" in you first post had me a bit confused when I read it, finally decided it was something to do with the airport.

Sorry about the mixup-----send our congrats on to Jef.
