Default First Flight

On the 11 of October 2020 my RV-12iS had its first flight. No problems so far.
I started to build two years ago and it has been a pleasure to build the RV-12iS.
It is the first RV-12iS in Denmark.
It is equipped with Garmin G3X, G5, Autopilot and COM/NAV.
I would like to place a big thank you to my wife for her patience and a thank you to friends and to Vanís.

Very nice! Do you mind sharing the empty weight of your airplane?

Default RV-12 N3942A Enters the Fleet.

Congratulations to Mike Rose, Doylestown PA, who recently flew his RV-12 for the very first time and has been busy completing phase 1 testing over the last few weeks. I was fortunate to have been asked to assist the last several months and helped as the second pilot on his first flight. Recorded a few short videos (links below) to document our progress.

Part 1 https://youtu.be/xUtzLXU--SM

Part 2 https://youtu.be/NStboPsVBcU

Part 3 https://youtu.be/5AMvpdd4s0k

Proves one can accomplish great things at any age. Way to go Mike!

Default First flight of my RV-12iS

D-ERVM was first airborn on March, 2. What a great flying little plane. I was worried for months about the transition from my ICP Savannah-S (STOL Plane) But in fact flying the RV-12 is easier!!!
