I hope and pray to see the day when 5000 hours have passed under my yet-untested wings. Congratulations!

Yes.

I know that it is not that big a deal -- there are many RV's with much higher time. But it is a milestone of some minor note.

OK Steve - you’ve broken it in...when are you going to start using it?!

I agree though - a milestone!

Actually, it's more like 500 hours. But more importantly, that was Steve's 1800th posting to VAF! So celebrate something!

Happy flying the next 500 hours!
No, no, not in the slightest. It was good to correct it. No worries at all.

You want more? Apparently I hit 7,600 this AM. Now check Paul's post count, this thread: 11,600.
