All First Flights

Rick Thorburn’s new RV-7A! | Vernon B.C. Canada RV-7A #74180

Rick sent us this report from British Columbia about the first flight of his latest RV build, an RV-7A!

First flight. All went well. Good trim and strength forward. The normal big RV grin that I’ve had before as this is my fifth grin in twenty-four years.

This girl is fondly called “Ruby 2” as she is painted cream and burgundy. 180HP IO-360, Dynon HDX, Garmin G-5, autopilot. A new learning curve for an old steam gauge jockey. She flies well.

Thank you guys at Van’s.

P.S. My son’s name is Jay. And he is also a captain on Q400s
