My wife's first ride in our Van's RV8!
Lori finally got her first first ride this past weekend. Yes, she was extremely nervous, but after a good preflight brief, I assured her all would be well. I kept the plane straight and level and very smooth, as her happiness is key to the aircraft's future. After flying for :30 mins her anxiety began to drop and she started to enjoy the ride. Upon landing she was very impressed with the speed and time in which it took us to get to Nashville. What would have normally taken over 4 hrs in a car only took us 1hr. in the plane:) (With a power setting of 23"/2300 we made KVPC-KJWN in exactly 1hr./163NM w/a dog leg around the BNA class C airspace)
