You using a Fitbit for step tracking? 1 think they figure 10000 steps is 5 miles, good job.

Yes, I have a Fit Bit Zip. It's my third fit bit, as I broke one and lost one. Fit Bit keeps me motivated to take my steps. Start with a long walk in the morning. The dog loves that one. Lunch and trips to the local grocery store are now walks.

I can do it, and it shows on the scale. With my plane coming in over weight, I need to shed pounds off of my belly to carry more. Simple as that. Good for health. Good for my load capacity in the RV9A

Today after 7yrs we have an airplane, thanks to so many for the help.
I now have to get myself tuned-up before I begin the flying adventures of the new GreenPlane.

Default Congrats Jerry

You guys(gals) getting your pink slips are making me look really bad. I'm still hoping for this year. Congrats Jerry.

Amazing Jerry that you RV9A is painted almost identical to my RV7A.http://i1283.photobucket.com/albums/...ps38b067e6.jpg
If this image works, I hope. I got y "pink" slip on Dec 21, 2012. I have yet to fly do to constraints of Insurance and weather. But soon she will take to the sky. Best to you.

Default FAA Inspects N942PT

After 9.5 years, N942PT has gone from project to certified airplane. FAA Manufacturers Inspection District Office (MIDO) in Wichita, KS brought three inspectors for a 2.5 hour inspection on Good Friday 3/29/13. That is equal to 7.5 man hours of inspection and questioning. Two inspectors looked over the plane while the third covered documentation. Non-stop questions. All three have military backgrounds and wore the faces to prove it. I will give proper thanks to the many talented individuals and family members that made this possible after first flight when I report to Van's.
Special Airworthiness Certification is now in the plane. Phase I testing in the near future.
