Thanks a lot guys. I am not a painter. I always figured painting was for the artistic crowd. I do love to learn though. I had a period of six months before I had the funds for engine and panel so I decided to spend the time painting.
What a learning process. It is not show quality but I can say I did it myself.
swixtt - feel free to PM with any questions.
Tom - ashame you can't see the TS Flightlines hoses from the outside.

I think I am the only tail draggin RV-9 in Florida.

That is an awesome paint scheme. I suspect you will have a lot of copiers!

AWESOME looking -9. Hope to see you at Sebring Weds morning breakfast one of the days. The paint job looks eerily familiar.

Mark,

Actually you have company up close. John Higgins at DeLand and Jim Clark at Spruce Creek both fly RV-9. Congratulations!

Talking

Ted,
Thanks I did not know that. I thought I had seen that I was the only Florida registered RV-9. Good to know.

Gary,
Imitation is the best form of flattery. Maybe if I show the rest I can stay out of trouble. I did make a couple of the Wednesday mornings in Dec. but I will keep trying.

Hi Vansters,

Just a quick pic of our recently completed RV9A on its First Flight. A QB kit that had lain unstarted for a number of years, we picked it up locally and 12 months later it is flying !

I flew my RV9A for the first time last friday may 02 in Vannes airport LFRV.
40 minutes of flight.
No big issue, just the EFIS and EMS to configure correctly.
And a small leak at the gascolator fitting, quickly fixed.
Greats flights are coming !
