Default Lurking no more!

Hi All,

Long time lurker that is finally pulling the trigger (aka wife has given approval lol)!

I have assembled most of the tools, slowly working on the practice kits, and getting the garage all ready. I've taken 3 EAA workshop classes and it's all starting to come back to me now.

This April I'll be ready to order an rv10 empennage!

I am in the Utah area and would love to ride in a 10 (or any RV for that matter!) if anyone happens to be flying near KPVU or U77. I would be happy to help /w cost!

I have enjoyed following this form and I'm excited to finally be starting my own journey of building and airplane.

Cheers,

Sean

Welcome to both VAF and the RV-10 crowd.

I've noticed that sometime in April is when Van's often raises the prices. They give some notice, though.

Welcome! Building is tons of fun. Your only way to mess up at this point would be to delay getting the kit any longer

Sean, I'm in So Utah and am building a 14A. If you ever get this way, I'd love to show you look at my project.

Sean, I am just fitting the doors on my -10. So, if you want to see a whole bunch of parts, slip up to KBTF. Sean and Rick's competed RV-10 are right next door to me, and Scott's is just down the street.

I spend some time in Hurricane, so I want to see that -14 sometime! Wayne L., an F-1 rocket buddy is building a Carbon Cub down there, as is another friend over at SkyRanch.

Default Also in the KPVU area...

I'm also a long-time lurker hoping to build an RV-10, and I'm also in Utah County. I'm a couple of years from a start though. Once you get started, if you ever need an extra set of hands or some muscle to move things around, I'd love to help out and maybe pick up some tips! PM me when you're ready. Gotta get a couple of kids off the payroll before I start mine!
