Default Camarillo / Oxnard / Ventura - Looking for someone with an RV

Wife and I recently moved to this area, starting building an RV-8 kit a few years ago but were derailed by our son's medical complications (4x brain surgeries).

We are getting back into building as things have resolved but need to re-motivate the same feeling we had about it years ago. Hoping there might be someone out in this area who wouldn't mind let us looking around and maybe even take her for a flight (I fly for work), would cover gas + extra for mx, to see if it is something we want to continue doing.

Thanks in advance.

Default Happy to help

I'm sure somebody will respond soon and get you what you need.

If not, PM me and I'll fly over to CMA and give you and your wife a ride in my RV-6, OR you could come over to KWHP (near Burbank) where I fly out of and I can give rides AND show you my RV-8 project that I'm working on (structure in 95% complete). Always happy to reinfect someone with the RV bug

Let me know,

My RV-10 is down right now for a prop overhaul, but we fly over to CMA on a regular basis so we could meet up (hopefully) next week or sometime after. PM if that might work.
