Default Generous RV Pilots

A big thank you to Larry Geiger for ON A MOMENTS NOTICE flying to KGRI and giving me a ride and pointers on flying the RV12 safely. Is there a greater group of reliable people than an RV owner?

The RV12 is certainly an amazing LSA that is surprisingly light on the controls and has unbelievable slow flight characteristics!

Default Congratulations on 45th First Flight, Steve Wyman!

Congratulations, Steve Wyman, on your successful first flight! I understand N167SW, SN 120038, took off from Front Range Airport in Denver CO on 26 Jun 2010.

You have now moved your -12 to Macon MO, where Marty Santic took the pictures now posted in RV-12 First Flights: Photo Album. Thanks, Marty!

Thanks for your SN, Dick! It has been added to the caption under your photo in the Photo Album. I now have all the data needed!

One last favor: When you get a picture of your entire plane, please post it here or attach it to an email to me ( doncarljones@gmail.com ).

Thanks!
