Default Flying my new RV6a home

After a year of searching for a plane, originally looking Mooneys'. I have decided to go with a Vans RV6a. You just can't beat the technology and price of an experimental.
Since I did not build, I am looking forward to getting to know all about this airplane and working on it with guidance. I am a really big advocate of owner assisted and want to learn as much as I can. Super excited for the adventures to come! This is my solo flight after receiving transition training from a CFI.

Congratulations and you'll definetly get the best bang for your buck. In my opinion, owner assist condition inspections is a great learning experience in getting to personally know your plane.

Congratulations, Chuck. I just did the exact same thing a few months ago. I'm loving it so far, except I haven't gotten to fly nearly as much as I'd like with terrible weather just about every weekend for the past three months. I am enjoying tinkering on the plane and learning as I go. This community has already been invaluable to me.
