Default So this happened....

....I took delivery on my RV6A today. Picked it up in TX this morning. Presently bedding down for the night in KY but will make it back to MD by lunchtime, I think.

I'm very happy.

Huge big thanks to a few people 'round these parts - notably Carl Froelich and Robert Schapler.

And especially Gary Brown - who saved me from multiple potentially costly mistakes.

Finally - Roy Geer for giving me the appropriate advice and guidance to keep me from mangling the airplane in my first few hours.

And Mike- I'll take very good care of her.

Good looking 6, congratulations.

I did my transition training with Roy and I mirror your sentiments.

Have fun, be safe.

Do you guys have visitor parking? I'm not sure I want to try taxiing down your driveway.
