Default Need Pilot to Move RV-9A from NY Area to Miami Area

Hey there-

Any qualified RV pilots want free use of a plane for a week or two and in the process move the aircraft from the New York area to near Miami just before Christmas? I'd need the plane in Miami before December 22nd, you could have it anytime in December that you wanted most likely.

The aircraft is immaculate with a brand new, professionally done Garmin panel, linked here (this is my actual plane):
http://sarasotaavionics.com/panel-gallery/vans-rv9a

Pilot needs minimum 200 hours in RVs and Minimum 50 in nose wheel RVs.

Let me know if you're interested!

BTW- I'm not paying the way down. You get use of the plane, I get the plane where it needs to be in a reasonable amount of time. No soft field landings on the way down.

Mike

Wow that's a great deal for those "collecting" RV models. I know at least two qualified pilots but they already flown the 9

I guess the insurance company thinks your nosewheel might get too scared of landing in the proper attitude and without drift if flown by a tailwheel pilot?

Nah, they're just concerned the TW pilot's ego may throw off the W&B too much
