Default RV-8 Mark in Maryland #83652

Hi VAF,

My name is Mark and I am just getting started with my RV-8 project. I have ordered my empennage kit and will be attending a Fundamentals of Building course this Saturday. Next week, I will be starting on my empennage at Synergy Air in Eugene. I plan to build the tail under adult supervision and then send it home.

This being my first project, I felt attending the empennage class would help provide a good base for building the rest of the plane.

I will post more when I return from Eugene.


Mark

Hi Mark,

Feel free to pay me a visit at KDMW (Carroll County Airport) if you want to see some RV's under construction and/or get a ride in my -7. I live NW of Baltimore and would be more than happy to help you out if you need it (I am also an EAA Technical Counselor). Where are you located at?

Thank You Mike!

I am sure that I will have many questions once I return from my builder/learning vacation in Oregon. I plan to do most of my build at Essex Skypark (W48), I live about five minutes away and have a hangar to use for my project. Thanks again for your ride and Tech Counselor offers. I have just joined EAA and look forward to meeting you.

Take Care.

Hi Mark,

Let me know if you're ever around VKX. Maybe we can grab a $100 burger sometime; my treat.

Synergy Air is a great place to learn. I did my empennage on my own, but took their Quickbuilding class in 2016 right before ordering my QB wings and fuselage. If it were feasible, I would have done as much work as possible with them. Their expertise is well founded and well known.

Hi Robert & Martin,

Thanks for the warm welcome. I am so excited to start, I am like a kid on Christmas Eve. I am happy to hear you had a good review of Synergy Air.

I am a strong believer in getting training. My whole aviation career has been in the military and the airlines where training gets a high priority.

Thanks again, I will post more once I have done something.

Mike, we have never met, but your website has been immensely useful in my build.

Thank you.
