Ah yes, I heard of the RV-12 he was building in his basement

Is he on here? He sounds like the kind of guy it would be good for me to keep in touch with!

Also, I'm going to be looking to fly a few RVs before I make the jump ... sounds like Smiths Falls is where I'll find them ... there's a couple of -9As in Ottawa, but I've yet to make contact with an owner willing to take me for a ride.

Default Dale's Magic Number: "13"

Thanks guys!

Dale does nice work, that's for sure. I can't thank him enough for his help this year. Thirteen airplanes! I can't comprehend that. It took me all afternoon to replace a light switch. Not coincidentally, he's not on the site very often, probably because he is busy building stuff.

Hey, JF, if you're looking to fly an RV, I'd certainly accommodate once I have flown off the restrictions.

It was a pleasure to work with Rob on this project, and help him see it through to flight.
I seldom post, but always lurking.

There are lots of two-seat RVs in the Ottawa area, so you should be able to get a ride in a model of interest. Smiths Falls has one or more of each of the following models: RV-6, -6A, -7A, -8 and -9A. Carp has a good selection too. And there are a few at various grass strips east of Ottawa.

If you want a ride in an RV-9A, offer to buy Vlad dinner, and he'll probably show up tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks for the offer Rob, and sorry to hijack your thread :P

So far I've met one 9A pilot, didn't have luck with him, could try again later ... Where do I find this Vlad, I'll gladly treat him to a 100$ burger for the privilege

Many visitors to this site don?t read every post of every thread, so there may be many RVers in the Ottawa area who miss this request for a ride. You?ll have much better luck getting a ride if you start a new thread with a clear title.

If you are interested in an RV-8 flight, I?d be happy to take you up in ours sometime. You?d be #2 in the queue, and other commitments are keeping me away from the airport a lot lately, so I can?t promise when I?d get you up.

Default Congrats Rob!

Hey Rob,

Congrats to you and your wife on your first flight. I was talking to Fern Villeneuve tonight and he mentioned that he just took a RV-6A for it's maiden flight out of Hanover, Ontario this past Monday.

Ron Fleet is the builder and Fern took it up on it's maiden voyage. I told him that you also had your first flight this past week and he was quite happy for you.

Once again, congrats Rob and I hope to be there in the next few years1

Cheers,

Don

Congrats on your First flight Rob ! Nice to see more RV's in Canada

Glad you were able to connect with Dale Lamport to complete your project. Dale is partly responsible for me starting a RV-8 project. He had an incomplete empennage kit for a RV-8 in stock. He built it for me. If I had not met Dale, I would still be dreaming of building a RV...
