Default FIRST FLIGHT

On Thursday the 10th of March N316KC took to the air on her maiden flight. All went well except for a few minor squawks. Needless to say I am beyond happy. Now its time to get the 40 hours flown off!!!

I would like to give thanks to my RV buddies who have taken me under their wing, Pun intended.
Darrin, RV10 driver who has helped me through my many struggles and was instrumental in the wiring of my 7.
Harry, rocket driver, who was the mentor that taught me what a firewall forward should look like, one that would make anyone proud.
Jeff, 7 driver who kept me motivated with his humor and the occasional ride in his immaculate 7.
Also to the three of them who set the bar for greasy landings!!
