Default RV-7A N74WK

After 8 1/2 years of building, N74WK became an airplane on 12/16/17 when Vic Syracuse signed her airworthiness certificate. First flight followed on 12/19/17.

Airframe: RV-7A super slow build
Engine: O-360A4A zero timed by me with the oversight of an A&P buddy
Prop: Sensenich aluminum
Paint: JetGlo/AcryGlo done by me with knowledge and equipment provided by another A&P friend.
Interior: Van's seat foam covered in leather by a local upholstery guy, Flightline carpet and armrests, glare shield pad by me
Avionics: full Skyview suite including 10"touch, comm, transponder, adsb and intercom.

She flies good with the ball centered and no heavy wing. Wheel pants and gear leg fairings will be installed as soon as it thaws out. Looking forward to many more years of enjoyment and memories.

Very nice looking paint job, that's a lot of work.
