Default New member rv-9a

Hi Everyone.

I recently bought an RV-9A (N27PP) and just completed flying it home from KHPN (white plains NY) to KVCB (Nut Tree Airport, CA). I had a great CFI from PSA at KCCR fly it back with me. Being a low time pilot of 130 hours at the start I learned a heck of a lot about the RV and navigating around weather on our long journey.

I look forward to learning all about my new RV-9a from all the experts on this forum!

Default Welcome to the Wonderful World of RVs

Scott:
You've chosen a great aircraft to begin your journey. You can pretty much imagine where you'd like to go, and that plane can take you there. If you don't believe me, you can look up the "Yoda" of all RV9A pilots by going to the search function on this web site and just type in "Vlad".
Have fun. Fly safe.

Default the legend Vlad comes up again

Terry,

Too funny you mention Vlad. When doing the pre-buy the previous owner had a lot of stories about Vlad. Certainly a legend!!

Thumbs up

Welcome to our small world Scott! You got a great machine TZ put a lot of sweat and money bringing her to the current state. I flew her on August 29, 2017 and "Toothpick" wrote a check to the builder right away. We went home as a flight.





Enjoy your aircraft I know she is screaming to go up If you are in my woods stop by. I believe I still have a spare ignition key if the lock is original.

Default New RV owners

Scott,

Congrats! I, too, just got an RV7A and flew it back to California from Minneapolis. Great transition training with Tom Berge and flew back myself.
Based at GNOSS (KDVO), but also spend time at Concord. Going through the steep learning curve of maintenance and tweaking some things. Let me know if you need any help. Also, yes, Vlad has been great inspiration with the RV.
