Default First RV Flight in Thailand

After 6 years building from a basic kit I made the first flight of my RV-8, HS-GMC out of NOK Airfield in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This was under a test flight permit and all went well. Waiting for final paperwork to do more flying. Superior XP-360, Sensenich Prop, Dynon Skyview with transponder, EMS and Autopilot, Icom A210 radio & VP-50 for electrical panel. To my knowledge this is the first RV flight in Thailand. A RV-9 is also being built at Nok Field.
Regards
Gary McNair

That is pretty cool being the first at anything. The first flying an RV there - that's real cool! Have fun and post more pictures.

Congratulations! I flew a Zenair CH701, based near Hua Hin, Thailand for 4 years before moving back to the US two years ago. Have fun flying in the Land of Smiles! Now I've got the RV grin with a 9a based in Corona, CA...
