Default oh, you are in Europe


first of all congrats - you are on the right side of General Aviation!! The -4 had me on ?hello? re it?s flight characteristics when I flew (it was my first RV flight ever) and owning one still makes feel priveledged.

I just realize you are in Europe: why not coming to the RV meeting at Damme EDWC (Germany) in May/June 2012?

Anway - enjoy!!

c.) bought flying at 51 TT: Vans RV-3A, PH-URZ .... now at 150 hrs (and having fun )
