Speaking of climb. The 'One' was easily able to out climb a 180hp c/s RV-8 at 7k'. She could use a lot more pitch in that prop.

Please be careful with very low tire pressures (as in "not recommended"), a stiff ride is preferable to a flat.

I couldn't quite keep up climbing with the -1 in my 180hp c/s -6, either. It does climb spritely!

Thumbs up Headed to Johnstown, NY (NY0)

The RV-1 is on the move, near Albany right now and probably landing at NY0 very soon. EAA Chapter 602 will have a brunch to accompany the RV-1's visit in a few hours. Happy Mother's Day, folks!

Default Watch the RV-1 cross the Canadian-US border!

The -1 is on the move up to Stanley, NS. Fingers crossed for good weather and smooth flying for this challenging week of touring the eastern part of Canada.

Default Weather looks good.

It's supposed to be nice for the weekend, but this is the Maritimes and that can change by the minute.

You have a seasoned group of RV veterans looking after the RV-1 while it's up here, it will be in good hands.

And I just got a call from Kevin saying that they have cleared customs, they are handing the airplane over to the next pilot for the weekend, and the weather continues to be perfect!

The RV-1 is on the move again. Ross and Don are on their way from Sussex, NB to Bromont, QC, via a fuel stop in Rivière-du-Loup. I'll take over the aircraft in Bromont, and take it to Smiths Falls for the night. Tom Martin will pick it up at Smiths Falls some time this week, and ensure it gets to Windsor for the 26th.
