All First Flights

William Hale’s New RV-8 | Lake Geneva, Wisconsin RV-8 #82463

Congrats to William on the completion and first flight of his RV-8! He writes to tell us:

After fourteen years of start and stop building (Airline Pilot Schedule) N159WP flew for 1 hour and fifteen minutes on September 26, 2019, and many more since. The airplane is a delight to fly, and gets accolades where ever we stop. She is powered by a Superior IO-360 (180 hp) and a Hartzel 72” constant speed prop. The panel is all Garmin and is IFR certified, Flight Line Interiors did a terrific job on the inside. The paint job pays homage to Veterans past and present. Special thanks to friends and family for the help and encouragement over the many years to finish the project.
