Default Just Starting out: looking for NH or MA RV builders

Hello all, first post. I have been lurking for many years and am finally getting to a point in my life where I may have the time and money to finally start flying. I have taken a couple of first flights over the last 20 years and also fly whenever a friend or friend of a friend invites me.
In any case, I am looking for "local" (MA or NH) RV builders so as to take a look at the work, ask some questions and maybe help if they want it.

Many thanks,
Paul

Paul welcome aboard

I don’t know if there are any current builders but there are a few active RV fliers at 7B3 (Hampton Airfield, Hampton NH).

It also has a great diner on the field!

Default Dave out of KASH

Paul there is an active builder in NH. I was fascinated with his work for years. He is a perfectionist and once in a while he opens his hangar for everybody to come. He has a detailed website http://mightyrv.com
Welcome to the best hobby on earth!

Hi Paul, I know its not next door but EAA 141 is located in limington ME. We have several RV fliers and builders active. We are there every sat morning. I also am helping a builder on his 7 in my auto shop in south Portland. Stop by any time.

Vlad,

Спасибо, мой друг!

Paul,

Come on up to the Nashua NH airport. We have lots of flying RVs... 3, 4, 8 and now a 10, and I'm almost done with a -7. Also some new starts coming up soon. Check your PMs for my contact info, you're welcome anytime at the hangar.

Cheers,

Dave

Thumbs up Welcome Sir!

Paul,

I see a lot of people beat me to the welcome, but just wanted to send a wave from Texas and welcome you (like others have done) to the greatest hobby on Earth.

You're going to have a great time, and you won't have much trouble finding people to offer help and motivation.

v/r,dr

Well, shoot me a message and if you drive down to Plymouth we can then fly up to Nashua and visit Dave.

How's that for a plan?

Hi Paul,
If you make it up to ASH, I will give you a ride in a -4. Dave’s work on his -7 is beautiful.
