I'll be there, but I'm going to have to drive due to a perfect storm of maintenance issues with available rental aircraft.

Will the gate to the hangars be open or will I need a code to get in?

Good stuff, thanks. I've never been in on the north side, I'm always down on the other end at the CAF hangar.

Default Nice to meet all of you!

Rob here,
Very nice group of passionate RV guys and gals. You all made me, my wife and little boy feel right at home in your hanger. Thanks for your hospitality And we look forward to our next step in joining the family of happy RV owners. If you boys have a need for the things we chatted about, feel free to hit me up as I am ready to be used and abused of my talents for aviation. Loved sitting in the 7 and I look forward to sitting left seat in one, but I suppose right seat will do for now. Maybe next time I won't have to pretend its moving! Thanks rain.....

Default Welcome

Welcome to VAF, Rob. There were several of us wanting to be there but the weather Gods prevailed.

If you're down in my neck of the woods, we'll put you in the left seat of my -10 and go burn some avgas.

Best,

Agreed, great group that made me feel very welcome. I finally got to sit in an RV-8 and assuage that little concern I had that I might not fit in the thing. Now I can continue building with confidence.

And even though the weather precluded a motivational flight, it was hard not to look over the nose of the -8 and imagine seeing open sky in front of me instead of the rest of the hangar. I kind of needed a little push to help me power through prepping these wing ribs.

Makes me wish I didn't live on the north side of town; I'd love to have a group of guys like this really local to me.

Yes...4 nches of rain, mostly on Saturday. The show still went on as scheduled, but a lot of the fly in friends could not make it. A fun time was held by all anyway. Things didn't end until around 10:00 pm.

I want to thank the sponsors and all who helped with the event. We shall not be deterred and hope to have a bigger and better Fly In next year.

Mark

Thanks for the invite Mark. I wish we could have made it in, but the weather had other plans.... Please keep us posted on future events.
