Default 1000 hrs in my RV-9

Somewhere over Georgia while dodging rain showers on my way home from Maryland, my RV9 surpassed 1000 hrs of faithful service. My first flight after completing the construction was July 1, 2006.





This wonderful machine has taken me as far as Chicago and Oshkosh, Ottawa, the Bahamas, Key West, and many places in between including ten straight years to SunNFun.

Next for N659DB is a condition inspection, oil change, magneto overhaul, and modified wheel pants.

See you at Triple Tree in September.

Great milestone Bruce but hours don't matter much. This what matters
