Hello Bruno, and all others following my build thread here on VAF !
No, the project is not dead. It is still very much on-going ! Actually, you'd be surprized to see what was achieved since last posting on VAF in November 2017. Up to recently with a full time office job and part time flight instructing, I had to set my priorities. Sadly, updating the project on VAF has gone down the priority list. Priority goes to building the RV whenever free time is available !
Winter is coming, and so is the perfect building season in Canada. I will resume "full speed building RV" as soon as the weather prohibits regular VFR flight instructing, just like the previous winter when I did not update you all with my progress !
As a scoop, my empennage still await MD-RA inspection, my fuselage primary structure is complete, and also awaits MD-RA inspection, and the wings, yes the wings, are maybe 50% done. I am building both wings at the same time, in a parallel manner to speed things up. Soon starting to apply everyone's favorite stuff, the Proseal hummm
Anyhow, thanks for inquiring about my project. I shall try to upload pictures soon, in between two instructing flights
Terrebonne, Quebec, Canada
RV-8 s/n #80414
Empennage: 95% (ready for inspection)
Fuselage: 90% (Canoe Final Riveting completed, put aside for now)
Wings: Maybe 50%, working on fuel tanks
