Default Now based at KVNY...

Hi gang...

So I just acquired my RV-7A, and ferried it from KOMN in Ormond Beach, Florida. I am based at KVNY; (Van Nuys Airport, as featured in One-Six-Right). Thanks to Richie, (Builder), and Daniel, (Richie's CFII and my co-ferry pilot).

I've seen a couple other RVs on the ramp, (Prop Park West), and I'd love to compare notes. Send me a PM if you're "around" or would like to meet for a burger at KCMA Waypoint Cafe or something.



I see that there's an EAA chapter nextdoor at KWHP, but I feel a little silly having bought my way into the club.

Welcome, Michael.
I am based in Fallbrook (L18), and there are quite a number of RV's in SoCal. Occasionally, you will see posts about flying somewhere for lunch.. hope to meet you one of those times. Or post your own, and inevitably, people will show up.

Josh

Welcome Michael,
I recently purchased a 7A as well.... based at KWHP. I built a 6A back in the nineties, put 500 hours on it over 6 years, then sold it in 2004.
Decided to get flying again last year..... found a beauty in January and bought it.
(Looks very similar to yours; would post photo but can?t figure out how to!)

Lots of RVs over here at Whiteman. (15-20!)

Regards,
Walt Hastings

Hi Walt,

Our birds could be sisters. You've got three blades, but beyond that our airplanes appear very similar. Good lookin' birds these are. My photo doesn't show just how similar the colors are. (Incidentally, it seems we made similar flights on Sunday, too.)

I've been meaning to get over to WHP and the EAA chapter, but haven't gotten to it yet, given the present circumstances.

Keep in touch! It would be fun to compare notes.

Will do Michael.... I?m retired so I can fly most any day, ( if weather is good). Would love to meet up for breakfast or lunch somewhere. Is the cafe at CMA open for business currently?

can you guys see the Pic? It's always a chore to figure out how to post pics. I wish it was easy and simple.
