Chuck hosted our January meeting at the Alaska Aviation Museum. He briefed us on the Museum's project to restore this Norseman for static display, along with the Alaska history of this aircraft. Lars added to the presentation with his own experiences flying other Norseman aircraft.

Sep 24th, 2022 - Ed White flies his RV-4!!

Today Ed White flew his new RV-4 N907EW twice, logging 2.4 hours of flight test time at Birchwood airport. This was the culmination of 13 1/2 years of work.

On the second flight Bob Edison "chased" him in his RV to help validate some of his readings and supervise as Ed did full stalls. Stall speed was 46 knots and on the final approaches Ed used 65K (1.4 Vso) as his approach speed.

Rick Henry acted as ground support.

There are videos of his first takeoff and last landing on our FaceBook page: EAA 42 Facebook page
