Default First Flight - RV14A

We are posting this on behalf of Allan Stern. CONGRATULATIONS Allan!!!!!

"I made my first flight this morning. Plane flew just like an RV. A few minor little problems like an aileron might slightly be out of adjustment giving a slightly heavy left wing, or pull to left. Temps were green oil temp 195 for a new engine. Very docile and no surprises.

Kit #140507 QB
19 months total time from first kit till DAR inspection
15 month actual build time minus QB wait time of 3 months and 1 month vacation"
