Smile Another new owner :)

Hello! About a month ago, I bought Ben's RV-6A - my first airplane! John Palese gave me transition training in Sheboygan WI, and then I flew it home to Nevada with help from Rosie. We ran into some crazy weather and got socked in for 2 days at the lovely Jacksonville, IL airport.

Since then, the flying has been fantastic in the sunny southwest

Congratulations on your new RV6A and welcome to VAF. Hopefully, you can share from your professional experience here too. Members do a lot of flight testing, not structural, though.

One thing about Illinois weather, it is always going somewhere else, so it will usually change soon

Great picture with that RV GRIN.

Great time of year to buy a -6A! I got mine just over one year and 140 flight hours ago. Enjoy it as much as I have, it will make you happy!

Happy life, happy wife! That's my story, anyway.

Very nice, Anna! You will love the 6A; it's a very honest airplane and a thrill to fly! Welcome to the club
