Do you have a tail number yet?
What is your Van's Serial Number?
Do you have E-LSA and E-AB Licenses in Mexico? What is yours?

Thanks for the video, David! Great quality, and great music!
Beautiful take-off and landing by your Dad, Alberto!
And thanks for the serial number.

Did I see mountains on one end and a lake on the other end of your runway?
Did you folks build the RV-12 exactly according Van's plans, or did you make some changes?

Don

Looks like your Dad handled that landing very well. How long is that grass runway?

Thanks Don!

Yes, our runway ends by the shore of Lake Chapala here in Mexico and it's around 2,300 ft long @ 5,000 feet asl. The airplane flew just great, it was built exactly according Van's plans.

Default RV-12 sn: 120141 flew today

We made our first flight today in our RV-12, SN: 120141. Was a little cool this am, with snow still on the mountains. My partner Ben Bradley was at the controls and made 4 flights today. After a few hours of flight he got a low fuel pressure warning so we checked and cleaned the Gasolator screen. That seemed to help, but after another hour of flight, the pressure dropped a little (still in green) so will keep an eye on it. I flew chase plane in my Zenair 601HDS and got a few photos and video.
