Default Builders/Completed Airplanes near Atlanta?

Hello Everyone,

I'm working on finishing up my Private Pilot's License and am determined to build an RV-7 starting in the near future. I normally fly out of KRYY (McCollum) and would love to meet people in the area who would be willing to show me what flying RVs are all about. On the other hand, if you are still building and would be willing to let me come help and learn, I'd like to get in touch with you as well. Feel free to reply here or PM me!

-Zach

Are you using Superior Flight by chance?

We have a RV row up at Cartersville. The back row of hangars on the north end of the field has 5 flying RV's and 2 project RV's. There are also 2 more in the hangar we call the Cartersville Aviation Museum, they rarely fly.

Any Saturday morning you will see a few out.

Default Welcome Zach

There are piles of RV's around Atlanta and next weekend is the EAA meeting and breakfast in Lawrenceville at the airport...their monthly meeting and program. Usually a big crowd and a bunch of RV's.

Ours is south of Augusta on the second saturday...a lunch.

Covington meets every third saturday and has a few RV's as well.

Check the EAA website for EAA meetings and fly-ins.

Best,

Default EAA Chapter 690 is the place to be

Like Pierre said. The EAA Chapter 690 pancake breakfast each month (next one is Sep. 3) is just lousy with RV pilots and builders. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting at least 3 of them. Here is the website: http://www.690.eaachapter.org/. If you are thinking about building the technologically and aesthetically superior RV-8A, you are welcome in my shop any time. I live in Stone Mountain. Feel free to call me at 404-310-5128.

Ciao!

Default NW side

We have an RV-9 and RV-7 on a private strip about 10 miles from the Cartersville airport. Send me a PM or email if you want to come check them out.

I saw that the local EAA chapter 268 had some RV-7's under their member projects page (http:/a/www.eaa268.org/projects/Projects.html) and I have been hoping to make it to a monthly meeting but have gotten tied up at work or otherwise for the past few months. Thanks all for the numerous quick replies so far!

Falcon Field (FFC) is RV Mecca. We have a large group of flyers, builders, and wannabe's. You can go there on any day of the week and witness RV activity first hand. Most of the action is at the T hangars behind Aircraft Spruce. We also meet every Tues. at 1130 at the Mellow Mushroom pizza place in Peachtree City. We usually end up at the airport after lunch. This would be a great way to meet the guys and see our projects and planes.

Default Superior

Zach, I use to rent from Superior. My brother and I are planning on flying our RV-9A to Superior's 10th Anniversary on Sept. 11. If you are there I'm sure we can arrange a flight. It always amazes me to think Superior opened it's doors on 9/11/2001 at 9:00am and the national airspace was shut down shortly after. Some might have given up.
