As you all know everybody always asks when will it fly? My answer always was...
16 Sept 2016. Ok why so specific? My 60th birthday of course.
Well one year later on my 61st birthday the stars aligned. After a frustrating delay of two weeks due work , weather and a bad head cold my RV7 took to the air.
The first takeoff was so quick and short!
"Kamina" flew dead straight , everything worked and an hour of circles over the field flashed by, with a small skip on landing. Had a good look around and Took her up for another 20 mins. More today.
Thanks to Doug and all on VAF for the incredible resources.
Engine is an Aerosport IO 360.
6 year build.
