This isn't my plane. I've done several first flights in the planes I have built. http://eaaforums.org/images/icons/wink.gif I really wanted to post this as the gentleman that built, test flew, then made the video won't post it for himself.
http://vimeo.com/75932533 The video link here could be a training video about how to properly prepare for and execute a first flight. Also, enjoy the author's sense of humor in the video as well. I am really proud of the team in my EAA Chapter that helped the builder with the construction, ground testing and execution of the first flight. http://eaaforums.org/images/icons/goggles.gif

Thanks for sharing. The big takeaways for me:

1. Transition training
2. You never build an aircraft by yourself. This is where EAA Chapters can really lend support.
