The worst thing you can do to an airplane is to let it sit.

Rosie cannot be accused of that!

Default Inspiration

Sometimes we find inspiration in places we least expected it.
Thanks Rosie... for that find.
Well done.

Rosie, congrats on the milestone ----------- you are setting the bar pretty high for others to match.

I wonder how many of those hours are due to giving rides to folks who were interested/checking out the RV line??

Yes, I know...there are pilots with this many RV flying hours in their logbook e.g. Kahuna, Turbo, Seagar, Van...I'm not talking total flying hours...I'm talking BUILDER/OWNER hours! It took nearly 15 years to get here...but I did. Let the discussion begin Rosie
Awesome Rosie and Tuppergal, awesome!

Congratulations, Rosie! If you get some kind of award, I think Tuppergal should get one, too! I'm wondering how many of those 4,000 hours included her, too!

Thumbs up

Rosie, Congratulations. I estimate that you've easily spend over $150,000 in Av Gas in the RV. Travel Safe. You always have access to our honeymoon suite and hangar at Stoney Point (6GA0) if needed. You've convinced me that its time to plan another long over water international flight. Love the Caymans.

Congratulations Rosie! One **** of an accomplishment.

I've not been flying much the last couple of years but I'm all geared up now with a new altitude hold and soon to be arriving navworx ads-b in/out.

Watch out. On my current path, I'll either get to 4,000 hours or 100 years old.

I do like the idea of a badge for every 1000 miles.

Thanks so much Dan! Rosie

Default Congratulations, Rosie!

I've followed you building and flying experiences over the past 19 years and have always been impressed! This is an accomplishment! I am closing in on my first 100 hours on my RV-6 since its first flight 5/31/15. My goal is to fly it as many hours as I spent building. I need to fly more often!

Thanks for raising the bar! Congratulations!

Thank you for the kind words Gary! Rosie
