Roger,
Is your N-number a nod to the Boeing 247, or an indication that you're into RV's 24-7?

Arrow The New Girl >> Wild Blue

Andy, Ben -
Thanks! It will look good at 500 feet.

Moose -
The N-number was a reference to an observation from my wife a couple of years ago. (For the first several years, she referred to the plane as 'The New Girl'.) One night when I came in late from bucking rivets she said, "Before the 'New Girl', you thought about family planning 24/7. Now you think about her 24/7 and all I get is the leftovers". Not entirely true. Anyway, the plane is now officially called "Wild Blue", and the N-number is a reminder of the dedication that success demands.

She also notes that, "A good project makes a husband easier to appreciate". She has been very supportive of the project.

Gary,
Ya, know, you are within my 25 SM phase one circle, maybe I can stop by after I build a bit more confidence in systems. Glad to see you any time!

Arrow First Flight, N247RV

Seemed like it was never going to happen, but last weekend saw the building end and Phase 1 testing begin. Three thousand hours of build time over the past six years seems like a blur now. With a Titan IO-360, Hartzell prop, and Dual SkyView panel, it should make a good cross country cruiser.
Special thanks to two sons who set high standards for bucking rivets and all those other four-hands tasks. Special thanks to a wife who remained patiently supportive as 'the new girl' slowly became "Wild Blue".
Yes, there were times when external encouragement was required.

It's quite a thrill to finally transfer from the ranks of RV builders to the league of RV fliers! Looking forward to aviation adventures when Phase 1 is completed.

- Roger
