All First Flights

Jon Johanson’s RV-8A | Dutton, South Australia RV-8A #81549

Cheers to Job for conquering the skies in his RV-8A. Here’s to many more flights ahead! He writes:

As can be seen this has been an on and off project for many years in between various other projects. I built it for me just the way I wanted it to be, hence the call sign ISQ (Latin, often translated, As It Should Be or No Changes Required).

Engine is an IO-409 built by Bart Lalonde. Prop MT. Empty Weight is 514kg (1133 lbs). I haven’t flown an RV with performance close to this one.
Do I still love RVs? Absolutely.
