Default first flight RV-10

Finally, after 6+ years and 5000 man hours, RV10 #40956 (C-GDMH) flew it's first flight today.
Many people to thank for all the help and guidance. Bill Peyton, Ray Doerr, Ivan Kristensen, Art Penner just to name a few. Many other non fliers also to be thanked. And last but certainly not the least, my spouse Sandra.

Flew about 45 minutes with only one squawk (RPM's were higher than 2700 on take off) out of CYHS (Hanover, Ont).

Looking forward to many more flights.

Southampton, Ont

Default providing us all encouragement...

For all us enroute to completing a 10, so cool to hear another success story, congrats and happy flying. A bit tense pulling back on the stick to go airborne, but what a great moment when flying...Well done!
