I plan to be at the KR Gathering in my RV. This is an opportunity for builders to get a familiarization flight in my KR simulator (RV-6), which has some similar handling characteristics to the KR series of aircraft. The RV is less pitchy, but more sensitive in roll. But is also big enough to easily accommodate two normal sized human beings. For those of you that fit, try to get some hands on time in a KR. But for those that can not physically fit or exceed the W&B capabilities of the KRs, I'll provide a familiarization ride in the KR simulator. I am not there to promote the RVs, nor am I planning to spend my days hopping rides for folks that would just like to catch a ride in a RV. But I do want to try to provide a service to those that are actively building or nearing completion for some training in an aircraft that will give them a bit of a clue as to what to expect from their KR. I am not a CFI, but do have 1400 hrs of KR time, so should be able to draw a comparison and co ntrast the handling qualities of the two aircraft for training purposes.
If you are building a KR, and have not yet got your hands on something with similar flight qualities, I recommend attending the 2021 Gathering, and I'll try to get you some hands on time in the RV. -Jeff Scott Arkansas Ozarks ________________________________ -Please see LIST RULES and KRnet info at http://www.krnet.org/info.html -Change list delivery options at https://list.krnet.org/list/krnet.list.krnet.org/ Affinity List Info Board -Search recent KRnet Archives at https://list.krnet.org/empathy/list/krnet.list.krnet.org/ -Search John Bouyea's decades of archive at https://firstname.lastname@example.org/
