Default N86JV Now Looks finished with Fresh Paint

Here are a couple pictures of our new paint on N86JV. It was painted by Matthews Aviation in Yerington, Nevada.

First flight of RV9 N659DB took place at Perry-Houston Co. Airport (PXE) in central Georgia. I am a low time pilot (<200 hrs) with less than 20 hrs T/W experience but this plane took care of me very well. Climb rate was incredible! Control response immediate, and rock solid stability. It was a short flight as I saw some lightning and rain showers in the distance. It took me three attempts to land because she just didn't want to slow down! I learned a lot about airspeed management yesterday!!! I can tell that this plane will be a patient and forgiving teacher and look forward to many hours learning the ways of the RV9!
Pictured with me after the flight is my daughter Diana and son Bruce

N789PH flew today for the first time with test pilot Doug Weiler at the controls. Doug said she is nearly as fast as his RV-4, lands much slower, and stalls like Cub. Temps all good, left wing a tad heavy, SL-40 needs some adjustment.

Big grins all around. Thanks for all the help from the guys and gals here!

I am of course jealous, and I am not sure how you got it done so quickly, with the family and everything.

For those who don't know, Pete is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet.

Huge Kudos, and please think of me when you need left seat balast.

Default Good Stuff

Felicitation from one Pete to another Pete for finishing a RV9A. Job well done. My left wing was heavy and I installed a wedge on the right Aileron. Flies hands off now.

You will have a lot of fun with this plane. It goes fast and you can land it on a dime. Good travel machine.
