All First Flights

Steve Weinstock’s RV-10 | Schaumburg, Illinois RV-10 #40230

Congratulations to Steve on the first flight of his RV-10! He writes:

First flight occurred on August 21, 2020 in the early afternoon, on a sunny, beautiful day. It went well, with only a few settings on the EFIS needing adjustment and a slightly heavy right wing. After the 40-hour flyoff, it was painted, and I can finally say that the plane is complete!

The engine is an IO-540 J4A5 overhauled by Poplar Grove Airmotive. The panel is by Dynon with Garmin radios. And the paint was by Woodlake Aircraft Refinishing.

Thanks to so many people from my EAA Chapter 153 for their help and constant encouragement, Alex De Dominicis for excellent transition training, and especially my wife Cheryl for putting up with my hobby/obsession for so many years.
