Default No. 506 Flys

Van's RV-12 No. 120506 made it's maiden flight on Monday 3-24-14. All went well and as planned. Almost exactly three years were spent in construction.

I spent most of last week flying with John Albury (Jetguy) in Ft. Worth. I would highly recommend the transition training that he provides. It is not just transition training, it is detailed preparation for your first flight.
