Default N96LV First Flight May 7, 2014

96LV took to the sky on May 7 and was the culmination of 3 years work. All systems appeared to be working with the exception of my SL30 transmit function failing in flight. I had my transition training in a 9A early in the day and flew my plane in the late afternoon. Great feeling and my nervous Sweetheart to greet me on my return. Now to look into that radio problem.
