I've flown in light snow with my RV-3 wearing nothing more than
a hawaiian short sleeved shirt and a smile.


Nothing more?

TMI -- too much information

Sydney (but wasn't the walk to the hangar kind of...blue?)

BTW, Bob, I can give you some insight as to the lack of activity on that
aircraft in that time period. I don't have your email, drop me a message
offline.

Average annual flight time since first flight = 42.94 hours


Well done, BOb...if my fingers and toes don't deceive me, you must be
flying about 90-95 hours per year.

How about it? Any other homebuilt owners want to chime in with their
approximate average annual flight time?

315 hours in 16 years = 20 hours per year.
diabolical arguments with part owner who didnt fly and believed 16
hours per year was plenty so it didnt wear out.(hadnt heard of rust)
sat for a year on the ground in argument. (my having the prop off for
balancing while we argued may have had some bearing on that I have to
admit :-) )
bought out part owner.
corrected tailwheel overgearing which made landing a nightmare.
now do 50 to 75 hrs per year. have almost doubled the engine time in
just a few years.

I've flown my RV3 over 530 hours since
picking it up in Washington in July of 2000...
Including 9 months disabled with a cracked
engine mount landing gear cluster from a
poor weld job repair before my ownership.

530/40 = 13.25 hr/mo x 12 = 159 hr/year
