Default Another New RV-14 Takes to the Skies

In another thread I posted that I got my airworthiness certificate last Friday.

Today was a perfect day for flight. The weather couldn't have been better and I took N626KM out for its first one.

The flight was wonderful, no squawks. Two hours in the air.

The RV-Grin strikes again.







Still working on the wheel pants and fairings. I'll get it painted over the winter.

Since you mentioned the panel Charlie, I added a picture of the panel to my post starting this thread.

Bob,
Congrats on the first flight. Your brother Jeff has been keeping me updated on the build. Have fun and be safe during the test period. Really hoping you and your wife can fly to our BBQ on July 15th.

Gary,

I am targeting mid to late July to have the 40 hours wrapped up, but weather and any issues I run into may get in the way. Two hours today was a nice start, only 38 more to go.

The 15th looks a little tight but if it's done I'm sure we could be there. Jeff has shared the pictures of them flying with you in your 10. Very nice looking airplane.

Thanks for keeping up with my progress.
