Very nice, Javier!!! It's been over 30 years since I have been to Spain. I'm sure it looks lovely from altitude...

Default Muchas Felicidades

Javier, muchas felicidades, debes tener muchos motivos para sentirte orgulloso de lo realizado, yo estoy armando un 7 en Chile y me quedan un par de meses para el primer vuelo, me imagino que debe ser muy emocionante el primer vuelo, y mucho miedo al decidir poner full gas en el despegue!! cuentame como manejaste la ansiedad?

Un Abrazo

No te preocupes HS, combustible completo no es necesario para el primer vuelo, de hecho yo recomiendo contra ella. Hay muchos recursos disponibles, que muchos en este sitio para su primer RV7 de vuelo. Estaría contento de ayudar de cualquier forma que yo puedo, siéntase libre de enviarme un correo electrónico.

Feliz vuelo

No worries HS, full fuel isn't necessary for the first flight, in fact I recommend against it. There are many resources available, many on this site for your first RV7 flight. I would be glad to help any way I can, feel free to email me.

Happy Flying

We get Final Certificate after 15 FLT hours withouth discrepancies and positive report of the AESA inspector.
In Spain Night VFR is forbidden for private pilots and IFR is not allowed for experimental acfts.
