Default VH-OBY CofA achieved

Hi All,

I just wanted to firstly thank the VAF community and the experimental brotherhood in general for their support on my project, whether by word or just being in the room.....

Yesterday, approx 3 years and 4 months into my build of an RV-10, I have achieved the Australian CofA allowing me to move into test flying.

Full details of my build on my kitlog site: www.ozrv10.com.

Look forward to seeing how it flies.... :-)

Default VH-OBY

Thanks Bob,

I have now got the paperwork and will be doing the first 20hrs on Mags... (like a warrantee test) and then activate the G3i and run the next 5 hours on that system.

Once that is complete, 5 hours IFR work then its all there. Can't wait.

Should take I think approx 6 weeks. No rush, do it properly right :-)

Default The plane sees daylight for the first time.

So much sanding on the cabin top I had to move the plane out of the shop and do some cleaning. Dust was piled everywhere!



She's kind of going through this ugly duckling phase right now, but I'm still proud!

Won't be long now and I can order the last kit from Van's...Firewall Forward!

Woohoo! Great progress Justin. We were very proud of our ugly duckling even when one time a line guy asked us if we were restoring it and was it a vintage plane lol

It's really looking great. I'm constantly impressed by the quality of the photos you get out of that iPhone!

I don't see door handles on that thing. How do you plan on getting in??

And Zac, I really teased him by sending him the pictures and then getting into a plane for 5 hours where he couldn't ask me questions!
