Default Another RV-14A takes to the air

Today was the big day. Vic Syracuse came down and did the inspection, issued the S.A.C. and flew first flight. We identified a few issues, but that just means more time tinkering. Overall a great day, having the "Additional Pilot" on the first flight was immensely valuable.

See blog for obligatory video and paperwork photo!

Congratulations! We are right behind you with Vic scheduled to inspect our 2 RV-14As on Saturday, weather permitting. Exciting times.

He mentioned that today - it was a great experience working with Vic through this project. He is a class act and a great resource for all of us in the world of "Van's" but also in aviation in general, experimental aviation in particular.
