I started construction of a Vans RV9A (SN 90374) in July 2001.
The first flight was February 23rd 2003!
Progress was steady for about 18 months. I used all the standard build kits from Vans Aircraft
. Starting with the tail kit, then wings, next fuselage, then finally the finishing kit. FWF included a new Aerosport 0-320-D2A and Sensenich metal prop.
As the years and hours go by this plane just gets more and more fun to fly. We have taken trips all over the USA over the last 2 summers, traveling both to Oshkosh and Virginia and many points in between.
