Default What did you do with your RV this weekend (7/17/21 - 7/18/21)

My freshly overhauled E-mag P114's went back on Saturday. And it's raining Sunday morning as I type this (we needed it). Looking around the house for an old memory card to slide into the MFD to capture engine data during the first start. Now where'd I put those?

Continuing my IFR training, logged my first 0.5h of actual IMC. I quite enjoyed the experience until we saw a lightning flash a couple or three miles out. Immediately requested lower and were able to get down enough to get to the bases. I need 14.8 more hours of simulated or actual IMC and a flight test for my rating, aiming to be done in 4 weeks before departing for the east coast.

I've been training in the Edmonton, AB airspace for the past week. Busy environment makes it a lot more effective learning experience. This last flight was my required 100 NM flight with 2 approaches, it was more like 260 NM and I did an ILS and a VOR with a procedure turn.

It's been a week for gusty crosswind landings, set a new personal record (not that I'm tracking it, it wasn't even close) on Tuesday with a 27 knot direct crosswind. Spent a seemingly long time on one wheel on that one. Great challenge and it turned out well, but I'll avoid those every chance I can.

The picture is my phone peeking out at downtown Edmonton during my flight on Friday. Lots of smoke in the area.

Last month we spent 5 days at Johnson Creek, that we used as a base camp, while we flew out to different airstrips for breakfast each day. There was 4 of us that flew out to the Idaho backcountry airstrips from the Knoxville Tennessee area. Our trip lasted 13 days and over 30 plus hours of flying with many landings and takeoffs. Our gaggle consisted of an RV14, my RV9A, a Bonanza V tail, and a Socota Ralye. This was the most challenging flying I have ever done.

Got the forward baggage door and aft fuselage cover plates painted, got the canopy on the fuselage and unmasked canopy and windscreen. Tomorrow the baggage door will be reinstalled and then the fuselage will be trailered to hangar!

Default 5 States in 1 hour

Flew to Memphis fora $100 hamburger detour on the way to Huntsville, AL and while planning the next leg, I said, "Hey, why not knock a few states landed in off the list."

5 states in one hour

overall, 7 states in just over 4 hours

Vlad,
Did you get new wheel pants? And, the cowling also looks new.

PS - those off-strip locations are excellent!
