Congratulations and well done! My s/n is 40 away from yours- good to see the old -6s still getting completed. You'll love it.

Congratulations! Good job. Serial number 22676 still under construction. Hoping to join the flying RV group one of these days. This forum is great motivation.

Thanks everyone for all the sharing of knowledge.

Default RV6 First flight

Congratulations. Now comes the good part and that is flying and enjoying your product. This hopefully will last much more than 17 years and you will look forward to it every day. May have taken a long time, but it is well worth the effort.
