Default 400 hours on RV-12 - - -

Coming home from fly-in breakfast this morning, it turned over 400 hours. Hope this helps encourage those still building.

400.4 hours

375 hours of taxi time does not count John.


Just kidding John, congrats!

I've got 410 on New Blue. Only 350 of that is mine. You might very well be the highest time RV-12 pilot out there John.

Glad you're flyin' it so much!

I think you might be right Mitch.

412RV has about 620 hrs but that is divide between multiple pilots.

400 is a good indicator of integral machine. With this rate John you will surpass other folks (read Turbo with 4,000+) very soon

John B.,

Glad to hear you're having so much fun! I don't fly the '12 as much as you do, but just passed 100 hours. I'm planning to bring her to OSH so she can get acquianted with all her sisters (airplane are always girls, like ships, you know).

BTW, how do you get authorization to park in the Van's area?

See you at the various events.......

John P.
