All First Flights

Tom Mabis’ RV-9A RV-9A #91512

Almost 12 years after I ordered the first kit, first flight of RV-9A, #91512 was made on 12/18/2018. It is powered by a Lycoming YIO-302-D1A with a fixed pitched prop. The dual Dynon Classic Skyview’s are powered by Vertical Power’s VP-X Pro.

Thanks to Vans’s for a great kit to build, VAF website and forums for information and ideas, and all others who gave me advice and encouraged me to continue on. Also thanks to Jan Bussell of Okeechobee, FL for great transition training which gave me the confidence to perform the first flight myself.
