I thought when I saw he was heading south he was headed to Turbo's in Florida but when I talked to him at Jeff's he said he was headed to Texas. I didn't catch for how long.

Talking Turkey Day 2015

... Jeff was expecting me for Thanksgiving dinner no excuses.

Typical NJ morning. 26F. The heat transfer is almost complete.





Took off at full gross weight. Very rare I fly heavy like this. A pit stop at Virginia Tech. The terminal is locked.







Landed here







then there. Then dozen places somewhere.






Clark Regional airport by the end of the great flying day.





400 hp for a follow me car. Bad idea? I don't think so.











Hi Jeff I am back as promised. Show me the progress on your RV9A!

First things first. Yummy great job Becca!





I checked the bottle we are working on for more then three years. Somebody put a sizable dent in that good old liquor. I heard it was a British helicopter pilot. After the dinner I re-marked the level and will check it again in 2017.


Now it's time for a surprise.






From completed empennage to this?! In two years?!





Great craftsmanship! The Fearless Mike is my witness. I wish I could build that good and that fast

Next morning all extended Jeff's family was by my RV.





Mike is 15 and right now he is undecided who to be. Either flying military jets or civilian helicopters. We went flying to Lee Bottom and I demonstrated him couple Gs. It looks like Mike is leaning toward helicopters









Jeff's daughter Madison on the way to the airport wasn't planning to go flying.
Then something happened. She jumped in right seat and we went around the patch. Nice and slow without a single bump. It looks like she liked it. Thanks for trust kids.





Jeff thanks for everything! Follow the plan we discussed. Next time I am coming when you are at this stage and it better be 2017!

Thanks again Vlad for the visit. I am sure I enjoy them more than you do. Russian hotel is here at any time.

As far as the quick progress, I was fortunate enough to work out a deal on Carl Peters RV9 he started back in 2006, and basically got it to the perfect point where you select your own style. With my work schedule, family, etc I knew building from scratch was going to take MUCH longer, and this fit the bill. Carl did a great job and his quality is bar none.

Progress has already been made on several fronts since Vlad left and will continue.

What are you using to heat your engine?
