Took this of my dad's -8 this morning at KPHD. Second time flying in it since I was away at school all spring. Was proud to grease on a nice wheel landing from the rear seat on our way back in! Hopefully getting insured to fly it on my own soon...

Just under two years after receiving the tail kit N317DC is finished and ready for paint. C of A issued by Reno FSDO on 22 Jun 12. Special thanks to Seher and Porta who were there every rivet of the way fixing everything I screwed up.

Thanks to these folks for making such fine products.

Yup. Good eye. That is Stead (KRTS), home of the Reno National Championship Air Races. RV-8 N317DC restricted to 100 mile radius from Stead for Phase One. She'll be on static display during the races in September. Everybody is welcome to stop by the hanger for a cold one.


Cheers

Default Stead

Hi Dave,

I'm in Reno and fly out of Stead in a Decathlon at the mo. I'm thinking about an RV8 and wondered if it would be possible to meet up. I would love to have a look at yours as I'm currently trying to convince the wife.... Will be out there next on the 7th about midday, I'll be the one doing aerobatics.... Let me know if we can meet up sometime.


Cheers

Mark

Here is 643RV after ten years 1 month and 7 days of building. Now with 120 hours and flying great! Makes all that waiting worth it!
