Talking New RV-7A owner saying hello!

Hi everyone, Earlier this week I purchased a new-to-me 7A and I'm psyched to become part of the Vans family. I bought the plane in central Florida, and took a couple of days to fly her to my home airport in Maine. She flies like a dream and is better than I ever imagined.

I've spent the past six months reading hundreds of threads in this forum, and I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who post on here. You answered all of my questions before I ever had to ask them! I hope to meet some of you who are based up here in New England, or even just visiting. I'm based at Bar Harbor/Hancock County (KBHB).

Hi Jason
My cousin recently moved just outside of Bar Harbor back to central Florida earlier this year. I flew up there for the first time last year with my sister, which was her first time in my 6. The highlight of the flight was flying over NY at 5500í just east of the Hudson on the way up. However that turned out to be the second highlight of the the flt because when we flew back to Florida we flew down the Hudson at 1300í. 😁. It was incredible.

Welcome aboard

A good looking RV, you're gonna love it!

And you're at Bah Hahbah? Hey man, can you clear out the murky fog this morning? I'm in Bangor right now waiting for it to clear... gotta do a scenic coastal run down towards BOS and Long Island. I hope!

Congatulations Jason! You're going to love flying your RV around the Northeast. John, if you do get down Long Island/Connecticut way today, and you're looking for someplace to eat, we have a food truck fesitval going on from 1100-1800 at 4B9, Simsbury.

Nice to have you here Jason! Nice bird congratulations! Pretty place to be based too. There is a sizeable contingent of RVators in New England. Itís a home to Flash Mob Squadron with Captain John at the helm. If you ever decide to explore high desert of Wild West let me know

Where is N666BK?
