Default N616CG RV-6A Earned its Wings

My RV6A took its first flight today with Stewart Cole at the controls. I opted to have someone with more experience do the first flight, epecially since I have had trouble finding any local transition training up to now.

Default Congratulations!

It was my privilege to be the first to fly this beautiful little bird! Thanks to Colin for trusting me with his baby. I am sure it is going to provide him with years of enjoyment. This is the first six I have flown that I could stretch out my legs - think I need to do the almost a 14 mod on my 7A!
