Default 2020 first flight, a Van's RV-8 celebration

We traditionally fly the first day of the year, in the early hours when people try to mitigate the effect of heavy drinking the night before (we don't ). [in the sense that we don't drink LOL]

This year we offered the first flight to our homebuilder 8 friends.

Video here :

Enrico has the plane in our (rented) hangar and he's in the final phase of assembly - you know 90% to 90%.... and Vincenzo is working hard on his standard kit fuselage with tail and wings done.

A couple of days later I received the visit of Dorian from Croatia, a guy involved in aviation business with his family that want to order an RV-8 standard kit.

Nicely done Luca, we have followed the same tradition over the last 5 years of doing a New Years day flight. This year was a Sydney Harbour scenic as a six ship formation, next year should be interesting as we will have 8 formation endorsed pilots with RVs......
