All First Flights

Mike Schulze’s RV-4 (14 years ago!) | Lee's Summit, MO RV-4

I’m just a little late notifying you of my first flight of my RV 4 14 years ago on 9-11-2004 but better late than never.

The build took 9.5 years with the help of my two kids and my dad who unfortunately passed away before the first flight.

Ryan Bendure (my wife’s cousin) took me on my first ride in his 4 in 1995 and I was hooked. I ordered the empennage kit when I got back from Colorado without consulting the wife. After 23.5 years it’s almost a laughable topic. Ryan was and still is a valuable resource for the airplane.

I believe I was builder number 4140
