Default First RV-8A ride, a decades long dream

https://vansairforce.net/community/a...1&d=1632245219

It was love at first sight when I first saw an RV-8A 20 years ago. It was the plane that inspired me to complete my PPL. I am very thankful to finally be in a position to have one in the hangar!

This is my first ride in our plane. I flew it home the next day. What a joy and a dream come true!

Thanks for the invitation! I have actually been to your airport a few times. The avionics shop there did work on my other plane.

I am based at JNX. Would love to fly around with some other RV's sometime!

I sure wish I could fulfill my RV dream. If only I knew someone with an RV that would take me for a ride.......

I lived in KEWN for 12 years.....I use to take all of my work to Sparkchasers(including a couple Cessna Caravans) at JNX......they are the best in the world!!!! I know Bill and Pat have retired but Mark and others are still there.....they could always fix stuff that others couldn't even begin to figure out!

Love the RV-8! Best wishes in future adventures!
