That name really sounds familiar. Were you in EAA Chapter 92 before 2004?

Default Thanks Guys!!

And a big congratulations to you Mike I hope you have a great first flight!! Thanks for the offer I may just take you up on it someday. Bob I was quite active in the EAA chapter number 92 many years ago. When I sold my RV-6A I bought a large motorhome and have been doing that for the last few years. Thanks for the kind words Mike! I look forward to flying an RV again.....

Werner,

I am in Irvine and have some parts that hope to eventually be a -10. I am close to finishing up the wings.

I would love to meet up sometime.

Regards,

Eric Ison

I may be wrong but as I recall in 1996 when I started building my RV-6A you were working on your RV-6A. I joined the Chapter and went to a few meetings before dropping out because it just didn't fit into my schedule. The chapter had time in the meeting format devoted to projects currently under construction. If I am correct you are the guy that really impressed me with your extremely well thought out ideas and high quality implementations in your RV-6A. I had worked in aerospace for a very long time even then (42 years) and I knew the difference. I saw the photographs of your fuselage to wing plumbing details using 90 degree bulkhead fittings for the interface of all lines rather than running the tubing through grommets on holes in the fuselage sidewall. That and your routing of the fuel lines, brake lines, tank vent lines and pitot lines inside the fuselage from the MLG structure protected area to their terminations immediately stuck in my head because I knew the original design approach was not acceptable to me and yours was intuitively right. Several years later when I reached that point in my approach was similar to yours. I suspect your meetings will be very beneficial to the builders in the group, quite unlike the largely social EAA Chapter meetings.

If you are looking to connect with other SoCal RVer's, then be sure to join the SoCAL-RVlist@yahoogroups.com email list. Lots of informal get togethers and fly-in's are announced and discussed there.

Werner,
I'm building a -10 in Long Beach and would love to meet up with some other local builders. I built the fuse before the wings and am working on the fuel tanks at the moment.
