Default First Flight

N7756B took to the air this morning for its first flight! All went well and the plane flies beautifully. Was well prepared after doing transition training with Mike Seager a couple weeks ago. I may have actually had a better landing than all of the 59 I did with Mike! I was two weeks shy of 11 years to build but it was worth it. Thanks to Doug Dodson of EAA Chapter 1000 for being my Technical Counselor, Flight Advisor, and being there to fly chase in his Glasair! Can't wait to get on to flight number two!
