Kevern Brown’s New RV-8 | Pretoria, South Africa RV-8 #83275

Congrats to Kevern in South Africa, who just completed and flew his new RV-8!

After completion of my 2nd RV, 2 RV-7’s, I decided to build the RV-8 standard kit that I had stored under my bench. Flight was supposed to happen in November 2019 however paperwork delays and the onset of Covid put paid to that. The -8 was supposed to fly pre paint etc however due to the lockdown it gave me time to complete the aircraft to the finest detail. Today she flew 1h12 min and performed flawlessly. The engine is a Lycoming IO360 with airflow performance cold air induction and a Hartzell blended aero foil. Instruments, a Garmin G3X touch. We have just ordered a RV-10 and another -7 slider due to arrive in December 2020. Let the big build to begin.
