Brad Martens’ New RV-9A! | Parker, CO RV-9A #91881

Congratulations to Brad on the first flight of his RV-9A! He writes to tell us all about it and to provide some words of encouragement for builders:

After 11 years and 2 days N8729M finally took to the air on 6/18/2020 at KCFO in Watkins, CO. What an awesome feeling! Thanks to my wife for putting up with helping me fulfill this awesome dream and to my dad for planting those early flying dreams on Sunday afternoon visits to the Quincy, IL airport watching the planes takeoff and land. My N-Number is his birthday and I hope to take him flying when Phase 1 is complete.

The plane has a Lycoming O-320, Sensenich ground adjustable composite prop, Advanced Flight Systems Quick Panel and Classic Aero interior.

It’s so cool to go to the airport to fly and not just to build. So if you’re still building don’t give up. It’s worth it!
