Default N7VQ First Flight!

RV, ‘Seven Victor Quebec’, dispatched for the skies after a ten year build on Tuesday April 13, 2017. Test flown by EAA advisor and mentor David Ross resulted in an amazing day. The RV-7 performed as expected powered by an Aero Sport Power IO-375 and pulled by the Whirlwind RV200 propeller. She weighed in at 1105# without paint and is equipped with some sporty Garmin gear. Thanks to my Lord for the ability and blessing me with the stamina to persevere, my wife who gave up her garage for many years and for the many that encouraged me throughout the journey.

Let’s go flying…..

Congrats to you Jeff! What a great accomplishment. Do you have a build log or know how many hours roughly it took you to get this far?

Hi Justin,

I kept a paper log although didn't keep track of the hours. I see many have completed theirs in 3000 hours or less and I can assure you I exceeded that. I see you work out of CHA. I worked a few years at MFD and currently I'm on the dark side at ZOB.
