Another RV-8 First Flight
After six years of building, I received my airworthy certificate from the FAA (Dayton, OH office) for N118W about a month ago. I postponed flying until I could take some transitional training from Jan Bussell in Okeechobee, FL in late June. The plane took off like a rocket and flew straight and great!
I want to thank everyone that post on VAF. The knowledge on this site is worth 10 times the donation (why I double my donation every year, thanks Doug R.!!!). I also want to thank Stein Air (Doug Law was FANTASTIC), Abbey at Flight Line Interiors, and Catto Propellers. Special thanks goes out to my EAA Tech Counselor Dave Ross!
