I logged on to the FAA web site and reserved an N number this evening. I know it’s premature but somehow having a number reserved makes it more real.
“tower, november tree tree one eight sierra experimental ready for departure.” …sounds legit.
I’ve decided to build my RV14 in my basement. It has heat and AC. There’s plenty of space. It’s reasonably isolated from everyone else’s day to day activities. The garage would have been cramped, cold in the winter, hot in the summer, I would have to keep my car outside, and the garage is also our main means if ingress and egress. So an airplane factory in the garage would have inconvenienced everyone.
I completed the second worktable and Remy helped me move them into the basement from the garage. I’ll keep you posted as I organize the workshops and start to acquire the tools I need.
I sent off an email to Van’s with some questions about shipping, payment, and such that I needed to know before I place an order for my empennage kit.
Built a couple of workbenches today. I used the EAA Chapter 1000 Standardized Work Tables plans.
Time: 6.0 hours
