Of course it is okay, Joeri! As long as our ignition keys are different, we won't end up going home in the wrong aircraft when we meet up!

Tuesday morning, less than 24 hours after receiving its airworthiness certificate, N1769K (RV 120359) took its maiden voyage at Eagle Creek Airpark in Indianapolis!

The test pilot reports that the plane flew great, has no heavy wing, and that all the instruments were running in the green.

Here are some videos. See the "show us the status of your RV-12" sticky for a still photo.

Thanks again to everyone here for all of the advice and encouragement that helped make this possible!

Default First flight

Kit #120401 N612PC received airworthiness In June and I attended transition training with Jetguy in July. On 7-23 at Rocky Mountain Metro (BJC) I flew her on a cool lite wind condition evening. Slight left wing heavy, the ball out to right about a quarter, and the fuel pressure was a little low (1.9). An otherwise uneventful 30 minute flight.

Raised the idle a bit and checked the fuel line to the pressure sender. I did find some fuel which appeared a little thick and had an orange tint. I flushed out the fuel line and will test it soon.

Folks,

I just posted a photo of Keith Williams' First Flight:

Keith sent me this photo on 11/2/2012 but I lost it, somehow. My apologies to Keith.
