Default My new to me RV6A, say hello to Tweety Bird






After starting a 7A approx 7 years ago and throwing in the towel early, I finally was able to pull the trigger on a flier. 2004 6A. 0320. First time aircraft owner. Now I just need to get transition training. 15hrs of it . Excited/nervous/ in disbelief I own and airplane now. Anyways condition inspection due in July. So while I wait on transitioning, Im going to rip into her with an A&P and hopefully some help from local FYV guys and get to know every nut and bolt ans system. Wish me luck. Now I get to start really donating to Mr Doug.

Congratulations. You own a time machine! Some of us want to build, some want to fly, some want to or need to do both. Fly often, don?t let it sit!

Thank you builders!!!

Welcome! I am just finishing my first Condition Inspection. Here is a checklist I used made by one of the very active contributors on this site. It really helped me out. Hope it's helpful you and your Mechanic too.

Congrats .. I've been watching Charlie's ad, and it sure looks like you've got yourself a nice airplane.

Charlie is a character. He held off about 5 other cash buyers as I worked with my bank/insurance and all. I think he really wanted to be able to still see her fly. Everything really just came together on this. Was about to buy a 6A from Delaware, but no hangars here in FYV or close. The city let me take over lease on Charlie's and effectively jump 27 spots on the list.
