Default Wheels and brakes

Wheels and brakes for me.
Talk about skimpy plans. Even the picture in the plans is not complete. I guess they got tired of drawing by the time they got to the wheels and brakes….


Gear On!

Default TripleTree

After Petit Jean last week, Butch & I flew up to TripleTree for lunch on Friday. For those that havent visited, u really have to land your RV there. Smooth as a golf course green. 7,000 feet.

Default KOZW- KSQL- KOZW

Completed a long x-country flight out to California and back, VFR. Had some weather delays, but no issues with the plane. Great views and a very capable aircraft. Glad I made the trip.

Default Day trip for Comair reunion

Quick out and back to attend the 10th annual Comair reunion picnic at Hidden Valley Lake just outside of Cincinnati. Got to visit with many folks that I worked with over the 23 years I flew for the airline. Double bonus, got to do a flyover on my way into I67 and get my night landings in on the return home.

Default Now the hard work begins...

With some heavy duty commitment from the team we managed to get the last of the 40 hour Phase 1 testing completed on my RV-6 during Saturday morning - 6 weeks after she first flew. With Avgas sitting at an average of $3.60/litre the last fuel invoice was eye-watering but its done, so now for the 100 hour inspection and the mountain of paperwork associated with the Test Report.

Its been a blast, so I celebrated with some aero's over Lake Dunstan.

A huge thanks to Sam Chartres for his help getting through the Phase 1 and especially for volunteering to do the spins (read - drew the short straw). In my defence I WAS present for the spins at MAUW. Why? Well... why not?

I flew my RV-10 over to the Southwest Ohio Regional Fly In (SWORFI). It was held at the Winemiller Farm near Blanchester, Ohio. It was a hoot:-). Probably the smoothest grass strip I've ever landed on. Got to see a few older aircraft, a gyrocopter, or two, and a few really nice RV's. The lunch spread was awesome also.
