Default It's a plane :)

As of 8/31/18 at 1:09pm my project is now a plane. N188TB. Thank you for being a great support group. It has been an eight year journey with a very patient wife and a very helpful son.

Way to go! It's hard completing a project like this, so you should be very proud. Now go fly! It's a mental transition from building to flying, so get your mind right.

Default Congratulations

Good job, now how rusty are you as a pilot??

Transition training sure did make me feel comfortable with the prospect of the first flight.

Thanks all. I recently got my complex and high performance endorsments and have still been flying my high power (145 hp) 172 . I have someone helping me with test flying and transition training. Expect first flight around sept 16. Thinking I my get a little higher climb rate then I am used to. Looking forward to my first ride in an RV.
