Wayne Roberts’ RV-4 | Ancaster, Ontario RV-4 #486

Congratulations to Wayne on his newly-flying and beautiful RV-4! He writes:

Successful flight test of my RV-4 took place on March 17, 2022, Cayuga Ontario with test pilot Mike Skoczen at controls. Mike has built an RV-3 and Harmon Rocket besides numerous other home builds. As owner builder of my RV-4, I was able to use my experience as a licensed AME in many ways however painting my plane I was in new territory. I chose a metallic Deep Water Blue which was the paint of in (Fran & Wayne’s) 67 Chev Impala SS. The paint job is one aspect of the project that I’m most proud of. The effect with the no stripes etc., provided the result I was after. (a “Sleeper”). Powered by 160 hp 0320 D2A. A little faster than her older sister, a 1940 Piper 65-hp J-3 which I rebuilt in 2005.
