Default First flight video RV-9A N194MH

I had my first flight last week and announced it here on VAF a few days ago but just wanted to share this video of it that my good friend Steve Richardson put together. (wish I had shaved.)

Congrats!

It great to see not only the RV GRIN, but a family with the RV GRIN.

Textbook landing procedure! Did you note that he held up elevator for as long as possible until it would no longer keep the nosewheel up?

Perfect job.

Congratulations Mike.

Best,
