Build Log 0003: Flying with Captain_John and Workshop Clean-Out Continues
Things are coming along nicely. Despite whispers of the RV-10 still ringing in the back of my head, I think I’ve narrowed things down to the RV-7 or the RV-14A. Having never flown in either, I posted on the VAF website hoping to catch a ride. Captain_John, who is based out of Plymouth, MA was quick to respond and offer a ride.
Holy hell! The RV-7 is an awesome, awesome machine. I couldn’t believe how sloppy I was, not being used to such a responsive airplane. John’s panel is a thing of beauty, too. Thanks again John for taking me up!
Today, I was able to do some more cleaning in the garage, and I made a ton of progress. Tools are ordered, and workbenches are being built on Thursday with the help of my former neighbor, Jerry. Coming together!
