Hit a couple of milestones on my RV-9A project this past weekend, so time to post a few pictures.
I logged my first time on this build 3 years ago today. This past Friday afternoon, C-GCPT climbed out of my garage/workshop and onto a trailer to make the cold 18 km journey to its new airport home, meeting up with the wings that made the trip 7 months ago.
I managed to score a spot in a large, warm, well lit hangar at CYQF Red Deer. Here we are waiting for my piece of floor to become accessible.
The next day, the wings went on.
The fun part now is bolting those wings in. Got the bolts in fine, the nuts are not so nice. I'm not equipped with tiny hands that might make it easier. However, some time, muscle, dexterity and a lot of patience will get this job done. All I have left are the various assembly jobs, the front top skin, last pass at the cowling and a few fairings. Nice to be at a point where I can list the jobs remaining.
My request for final inspection is going out today, we're told to get that in around 3 months prior to anticipated inspection. Have to sneak in the registration process in that time.
