You are planning on going, right?

Congrats again, Al!

Now we need to get Billy licensed too!

Well, I've had my PPL for a while, but does starting my RV-10 without every riding in an RV count? I'm almost done with my instrument ticket with hopes that it will help me get insurance for the -10 when I finish it. Two more years and hopefully my -10 will fly. Although I've been saying that since 2003... Congrats on earning your PPL.

Al,

You're not the only one! I've been working on my RV-7A for about 6 years now, and I don't have my PPL yet either. I'm nearing the finish line, though, so I hope to start flying lessons this spring. It would be great to finish it about the time my RV is ready to fly.

I took FAA ground school in college, but that was many years ago. At the time, as a student with no income I couldn't afford to fly. But I've wanted my own airplane my entire life, and the RV was the answer. Can't wait!

Congrats! As a recent recipient of a Private Pilot certificate I know EXACTLY how you feel. I remember being on quite a high of emotion that day.

On your boat! You timed it very well Al. I will come with full fuel for you to get some loggable stick time. Your insurance man would love to see extra hours in 9.
