24 months... that is exactly the time I have been working on my RV-9, but it if FAR from finished. Congratz!

In case you did not know yet, the first weekend of July we organize the Experimental Days: www.experimentaldays.be. I got an email from an Austrian RV12 builder who is likely to join with 2 other friends. It would be great if you could join!

Good luck and enjoy!

24 months, man just the idea of having that much free time to work on a plane project to get it completed in that time frame makes me jealous...

Built an off-plan 9A with too much fuel and too much HP. Should drop dead any minute now.

Default Center Console

Hi Tom,

Yes it's a Selfmade Part. It takes many Time to Build.... The Side Plates(Panels) are Wood with approx 1.5 mill. and Glass Layers the Front a Self-building AL Braket (See Photo)

But make it a Little smaler so approx. 1 Inch, in the middle.. (it is 110 mill.in my Plane) for my it's completly ok, but a Pilot with Legs like a Rugby Player had a Problem with the Stick Range...




Greetings
Manfred

Default Pink Slip

Okay it's not really finished - too poor for paint and too impatient for wheel pants just yet, but N313GT received it's pink slip today thanks to Vic Syracuse who was kind enough to stop by on his way to SNF. 3 1/2 year slow build, couldn't have done it without VAF.

Hoping for a first flight Thursday early AM at KZPH before the SNF crowd starts launching.

Way to go, Chris!!! 3.5 years is an impressive completion time for a slow-build kit. We're all looking forward to your first flight report and impressions.
