Not mine, and on Thursday, but borrowed an RV-10 to save 20 lives from death row in Boca Raton. Flew down from Maryland to Savannah and transferred them in Delaware for further transport to their furever homes in Massachusetts.







My co-pilot's first experience with PNP, he asked if I was sure I wanted to spend so much gas money on such a thing.

Yes. Yes I do.

Default For those who enjoy polished aluminum

Just finished up another round of polish and really like this pic so thought I would share it.

At this point I need something turbine powered with an aisle between the seats……
Although if the 15 is a 185 clone I’m in!

Don’t let go of that 6 easily…..

Thx Dan!
Ummmm, about 38 weeks or so ago.
There’s some parental experience involved but man did we ever get the perfect set.
