First Flight!

After 20+ months of building, RV-14A, N3318S took flight for the first time today. I can’t put into words how gratifying it was to leave the earth in a machine that I built. Special thanks to Jared Solomon for making the first flight with me and for all the help along the way. Thanks also to Wesley Greer and Craig Garella for coming out today. The airplane flew amazingly well. No major squawks. Thanks to all the good folks at Van’s Aircraft who designed a wonderfully capable airplane in a well engineered kit. Can’t wait until the next flight!

  1. Congratulation Ron on your first flight! I flew for a number of years out of KRYY. I wish you many happy years of flying! Can’t wait to finish my RV-14A.
