Adam Brinkmann’s RV-12iS | Cincinnati, OH RV-12iS #121202

Great work, Adam. We’re excited to see his first flight with his RV-12iS. He shares:

After 3 1/2 years of building, on March 8th, 2023, N242SA slipped the surly bonds of earth and took flight. With the help of test pilot Jeff M (pictured at right), she flew flawlessly with no squawks. I’ve had the RV grin ever since. As someone with no prior knowledge of aircraft construction, it was extremely satisfying to see a machine born in my garage soar beyond the horizon. It was truly a day I will never forget. Thank you, Van’s Aircraft, for your support through this journey.
