Default Michigan RV-10s?

I live in Howell, MI and am considering an RV-10 build. Does anyone in/near southeast Michigan have one flying or under construction? I'd like to at least sit in one to get a feel for the cockpit. I'd also love to buy gas for someone with one flying.

Default RV-10

I am based at KHLB in Batesville Indiana. Just completed Phase 1.

Be happy to talk about it and show it...probably a bit far but you never know; last week a couple of guys flew in from Battle Creek to see it...

David,
I'm on the Southwest side at Z98 between Grand Rapids and Holland. Let me know if you make it out this way.

Thanks Gary. I'll do that. It looks like I might get a ride in Pontiac this week! Is yours flying or what stage of construction?

I have a couple of friends at PTK who are flying RV-10s. PM me and I'll see if I can arrange it for you.
