Joe Reaves’ New RV-14A | LONGVIEW, TEXAS RV-14A #140468

Congrats to Joe, who writes to report on the first flight of his new RV-14A!

After 2 years and 2 weeks of construction, my RV-14A flew on June 7, 2020. The plane flew “hands-off” from the beginning with no trim being required except for the normal pitch trim adjustments from take-off settings, cruise setting and landing setting. The Lycoming IO-390 engine ran perfectly.

I want to thank my wife, Gina, who has been my inspiration and chief rivet bucker. Without her, I don’t think the project would have reached conclusion.
