Congratulations! We need more air traffic controllers who are pilots, especially those who know the BS&T it takes to build an aircraft.

First flights can be stressful-- new aircraft, engine, avionics and (sometimes) tail dragger vs. nosewheel. Add in traffic and unsympathetic ATC (ahem), funny noises and weather.

But with over 8000 similar aircraft flying, you don't have to worry about the basics.

Enjoy, nice job. I like your paint job :-).

Congratultions, Andy. I thought of your inspection yesterday when I was getting in a few landings at OWI. Hopefully clear weather by Wednesday next week for a first flight.
