Default My birthday present

Got this from the girlfriend today. We've been talking about building a plane for a while now, and about a month ago I asked her this question. We placed the deposit 2 weeks ago for an RV7.

That's good news!

I met my wife just after starting on the tail kit and ordered the fuselage kit the week before the wedding. Her and her father (he's a pilot as well) were there through the entire build. I would fair to guess she either drove or bucked one third of the rivets.

Awesome! Building a-7 myself. You need the best support staff you can get...wife is most important. They sign on to a very long, expensive, sometimes frustrating commitment. My girl is in the shop whenever I need her; it is great to have someone on hand 24/7 to lend a hand.

Excited? Wait until that first box/crate lands at you build site!

I knew there was a way to do that and forgot what it was. Thanks.

Looks like you have an awesome girl friend!

I built my RV-7A. About a year or so later, my wife started work on her masters degree. She told me that since she was going to be so busy (i.e. no time for me) that I should consider building another airplane. I said okay after pondering the idea for 2 seconds.

I love my wife!
