Basically looking to get inspired and make sure I can take on this adventure on my own in my garage (with some help from y'all).

Default Itís an airplane

Today, my RV12 passed its airworthiness inspection; it was so easy that it was almost anti-climatic to the 711 hours I spent crafting the little bird. So, now itís on to flying.

Default Finally Finished ?

Well I know better than to say my plane is finished with out adding a ? . This is my second build. My first was a 7A. There was always something to do.

Just picked up my 12 at Lancaster Aero LLC. in Smoketown Pa. They did a fantastic job. I am tickled GREEN.




Looks right at home in my hangar
