Default RV-10 Project Switzerland

Good day,

Just a few words to announce our RV-10 project, started in August 2018. We just love every moment of it so far!

Our blog is also online, it is not a technical one but rather a place where we will document and share this great adventure with 3 to 5 articles per year.
Many have done, or are doing, a detailed build blog and I take this opportunity to really thank them for their work which is a tremendous help to new builders. For the RV-10 : Brian Chesteen (Brantel), Jason Ellis (video blog), Adam Bezancon (adamsrv10), Mark Ciaglia (marksfamilyrv10), Charlie (N688CD), Mike (rvten.com), Richard Williams (mouser) and many others.

Thanks a lot also to Doug Reeves for running this forum and to the contributors!

Brgds,

Yannick,
Welcome to the most amazing adventure!! I have enjoyed every minute of research, building, fabrication and standing back admiring the work. Thanks for looking at my build and I hope it provides some insight. I have used many before me to make my progress smooth.

Default Sion - coincidence

Hi Yannick and welcome to this great community. I used to be based at Sion (with the Groupe de Vol ? Moteur) and now I'm just about to start building an RV-10 with a plan to fly it there from Cambridge UK. Good luck with the build!

Be sure to click on the AZIMUT270 tab on Yannick's RV-10 build website. Yannick, I enjoyed reading the book.

Salut Yannick et bienvenue dans le club

2 of those mighty RV-10 are located on my field (LSZF), which ain't far from you. HB-YNN is my hangar neighbour, and HB-YVJ is still flying off the test phase. I'm sure either Michael or Gordon would be more than pleased to help should you have any open question during the build.
