Default Congratulations to Steve Rush on his 1st Flight!

Congratulations, Steve Rush, on your first flight in your RV-12, N391MQ, SN 120018! You have confirmed for me that the date of your flight was 19 Jun 2010. So your plane is the 44th RV-12 to fly (that we know of)!

That makes Steve Wyman's the 45th, and Dick Seiders' the 46th RV-12 to fly. Numbers will change from time-to-time as new flights are recorded "fast and furiously"!

Don

Default Congratulations, Keith Ball, on your first flight in SN 120256!

Congratulations, Keith Ball, on completing your first flight in N382KB, SN 120256! Of the known first flights, you are # 47!

Your plane's paint is very nice! The variety of excellent paint jobs is apparent in the first 47 RV-12s to fly!
Thanks for sending me two high-quality photos of you and your plane. Your photos have been added to the Photo Album.

I understand you first flew out of Payson, AZ, but are now keeping your plane at Lake Montezuma, AZ.

Enjoy your flying!

Don

Default Congratulations, Mike Miller, on your RV-12's First Flight! (#49)

Congratulations, Mike Miller, on your successful first flight! I can clearly see air under all three of your RV-12's tires in your photo! I understand the date was 28 July 2010 at the Bayport Aerodrome (23N) in Bayport, NY. That makes your RV-12 the 49th RV-12 to fly (that we know of).

I know you will enjoy all of your future flights!

Your photo has been added to RV-12 First Flights: Photo Album.

Don

Default --#50-- N815W (formerly known as 120149) flies

Today at 1:00 p.m. N815W departed runway 24 at Napa airport. The flight went smooth, with no problems encountered. Winds were 220 @8kt. The tower allowed me to climb out over the airport where I flew several circuits. When I was sure all was ok I departed to the west to and checked for trim and general feel. Everything seemed pretty close. Tomorrow and I can start on the test cards and really check things out. The flight was witnessed by my wife and just about everybody who was at the airport. All can confirm that my RV grin was appropriate for a first flight. Photos will follow.
