All First Flights

Dennis writes in:

First flight of CGRVU was May 15, 2017 after 7 years of construction. All went well with no snags and performance of the airframe and engine combination was gratifying and very grin-worthy. Engine is IO-360 A1A from a Mooney and overhauled by Dave From Aviation in Red Deer. Prop is Whirlwind 200RV and pulls RVU along at advertised book speeds. Skyview Touch occupies most of the panel space and controls the Dynon 2 axis autopilot. Paint is from UpperValley Aviation in Chiliwack BC. Thanks to Chris Droege from Idaho for an excellent training program that gave me the confidence to do 1st flight. Thanks to Van’s for a great product that provides a very high “smile per mile” ratio.
