9 years 8 months and 23 days to the time I received my certificate. About another month after that before I flew it. For those of you still building and struggling to find time or to balance schedules, hang in there. THESE ARE AWESOME AIRPLANES...

In the last 3 weeks I’ve flown mine from home (in Waco, Tx) to Cape Girardeau, Mo and back. To Big Bend near the Mexico border in far west Texas and back. To Billings, MT and back. To Norman, OK and back. And every time I settle into a cruise phase of the flight, I’m just amazed at how awesome the RV-10 is.

Tons of room to spread out. Amazing useful loads. Predicable performance. Extremely wide operating envelope. Couple all that with amazing avionics and it’s easy to find yourself falling in love with the airplane flight after flight after flight.

These are amazing airplanes. Mine is ugly as sin and I’ve even been considering a fake wood panel for OSH in an attempt to create the airborne version of the Griswolds station wagon while I’m unpainted. But the airplane is amazing...

If you’re still building and you’re struggling to find time or make progress, don’t stop. Once you get the bugs worked out and start using your plane, you’re going to fall in love with it flight after flight.

The reward is so satisfying that any words I write can’t do it justice. Just get it done and get ready to fall in love with an amazing machine.

Me too - 7 years and 1,000 hours.  That same feeling creeps up on me
almost every flight.

We were flying some YE yesterday. One comment I get more than any other from those who fly in an RV for the first time-"You can see everything from this airplane."

Coming up on four years and 440 hours.

Other than the prop governor fiasco which wasn’t the airplane’s fault, it has been a remarkably reliable workhorse and the best overall GA aircraft I have ever flown.
