Default First Flight S/N 120476

I completed my first Flight today. I asked Gary to be the test pilot. He took it for a high speed taxi. Then he came back on completed 3 full stop landings. After that, he flew it out over the ocean and did some flight testing.
After he returned, I hopped in and took it out for a spin. Everything went great. I'm looking forward to getting through my phase one flight testing so that I can take it on my first long distance cruise.

Thanks everyone! I'm looking forward to hours of fun flight.

RV10Man...Thanks for pointing out my sig. I have it fixed now

Erik.37m...I need to update my web. I have been renting out of CIA in Camarillo but could not get a hanger there. They have a 5 year waiting list. I'm still at 139 on the list. I have my plane hangered at Oxnard. Nice for flying out over the ocean but I have to deal with the foggy weather
