Default FIRST FLIGHT

RV-14A, N468JG, matured into a real lady today by making her first flight ever into the earth's atmosphere. She flew "hands-off" from the very beginning and the Lycoming IO-390 purred like a kitten. She is now a "Real Airplane" ready to join the ranks of the thousands of RV's that have preceeded her.

The flight took place at Gladewater Municipal Airport, 07F, this morning at approximately 9:30 AM CDT after two-years, two weeks in construction.

I'm not one to toot my own horn, but ?. TOOT-TOOT anyway!

14's are starting to pop up everywhere! We have two at our field now. It's nice to be able to compare builds in person.
