Talking I gotta go on a ride with DADDY

Today when I was playing in the shop I saw daddy pushing the RV-10 out and then started pushing the RV-8 out.

I said: What are you goin ta doo?

He said: I gotta run to a close airport to drop off some parts for a job.

I said: I wanna go!

He said: Well maybe you can.

We went inside to get some stuff an I told Mamma: I'm gonna go with daddy in the RV-8 maybe!

So we got a lunch box for me ta sit on and got all straped in.



We did the mag check right here.







Daddy thinks this was a perdy good day to fly but he says any day is a good day to fly



All done it was a big job but me n daddy got it done

How old is your daughter? I have a 20 month old son and am trying to figure out an appropriate point to take him for his first (non-airliner) ride. Right now, it is a no-go until I'm convinced he won't take off the headsets while we're out and about. RV cockpits are loud and little kids and their ears are sensitive to that...

Default So cute!

She is pricelessly cute! Can't wait for mine to be at that stage.

Like Kyle I am trying to figure out the right time for an introduction to flying. I also need to figure out what headset will be most comfortable for her.

Reminds me of taking my daughter to Omaha one time so she could be a flower girl in my cousin's wedding. My son had just been born so the wife couldn't go, so it was just the two of us and a very special trip.

That's a beautiful story, she's such a cutie pie!

I have several grandchildren that I can't wait to take up for rides, when I get my RV finished. With mom's permission, of course. The oldest one (now 7) has been quite involved "helping" me in the shop.

Default Here comes a loop!

Hey Bruce - Snap!



Older one about to fly - when I can trust her to leave the stick and the PTT alone. Both spend hours watching the same two Oshkosh youtube videos ;-)

Cheers...Keith

[quote=Kyle Boatright;698415]How old is your daughter? 2years [quote]

She was born a premie (2lb 4oz) in the nicu for 30 days, came home at 3lb something.

No known problems.

Took her for the first ride to Virginia in the airplane about 2-3 weeks after she got home.

Been flying ever since.

Her little sister was born premie also at 4lb 6oz been flying since a month or so old.

Hey Keith,

Are you able to get away with loops in an RV-12, in Scotland? Hahaha If not, better take the stick away from those kids!

Seriously, they are WAY too cute! Aren't grandchildren wonderful?
