My Onex finally flew on 9/21/21. Special thanks to Chuck B. for the help with ALL those rivets and Jim D. for help down the stretch. Some of the best mechanics in the SW, Arlo and Grant, kept me honest and helped to make sure that first flight was uneventful. It indicated 154 mph which was backed up by GPS. That little 80hp AeroVee ran like a sewing machine. It was super smooth and all the temps were great!
This is my third completion of my own airplane and my 13th first flight on a new or newly restored airplane. Hmmm… What next…?
