Smile A New RV Grin in MI

Hello,
I have been lurking and learning from this group for the past year or so, as I searched for a flying RV-9A. You have already answered more questions than you will ever realize.

On Jan. 12th, I became an RV owner for the first time. I flew my new-to-me RV-9A (N94KJ) from Oregon to its new home in Michigan in the best and worst of Winter weather.

I have been flying certified planes for 14 years, but nothing has come close to the performance I have experienced in the RV-7A I flew for transition training, and now the RV-9A. My wife is enjoying the plane, too.

We already have many new destinations on our bucket list.
I'm sure I will have questions as time goes on. I'm learning something new about these planes every day.
I just wanted to say hello and say thanks for the help along the way.

Dale

Curious. Ever any talk in your city to change the name to New Zeeland, MI?
