Default I would like to sit in your cockpit and make airplane noises

I have begun a build of an RV-12iS (I got "such a deal" on a tail kit).

My wife has not sat in a low wing bubble canopy aircraft before, and would like to verify that she likes the view and ergonomics.

Is there anyone in the Atlanta area that would be willing to give a ground tour of your aircraft?

We are located within the airspace of PDK, but anywhere in the area could work.

FWIW, my wife used to mildly freak out anytime we were climbing or descending in the 172 I used to fly. She's a little bit claustrophobic, just to make things more fun. I was concerned that building a tip-up RV-7 was going to push her from "mild" to "melt-down". But from the first flight she made with me in the 7, it didn't bother her at all. I think it even surprised her a little. Can't explain it, but maybe it will give your wife a data point of hope.
