Default RV-10 First Flight




First flight of N96KE was Tuesday 12/8/2015. This is my brother, Keith's, plane that I helped build. We used the Additional Pilot Program for the first flight. A 20,000 hour pilot with 1,000 in RV's went along with Keith. Airplane flies great. Equipped with Dynon Skyview, IO-540 and Constant speed MT-Prop.

Congrats!

Also, i would recommend getting as perfect a seal around the door as possible. IE, one piece. You will get an annoying whistling noise, otherwise. If you cant hear the whistling, dont worry about it.

Need to acknowledge several who helped along the way:
Ron Russ spent many hours on the construction. Thanks to Kyle Boatright, Brian Urein, Dale Fowler, for help along the way and several guys who help cut/fit the fiberglas top.
