Default And another first flight

Well after the storms blew threw and after a few high-speed taxi tests N313RT took off. Everything went extremely well. I circled the field at 5000ft checking all the controls, trims, airspeeds, temperatures, etc. Flew for 30 minutes and then landed. I will do an inspection in the morning and hopefully fly again tomorrow.

....Yeah I'm still smiling.....

Default Congratulations neighbor.

I am still smiling. Averaging 8 hrs/mo and 15 mpg. The family can't wait until the next trip somewhere far away. This baby is not going on many hamburger runs. Get to testing and see you at Osh HBC.
