Yesteday 10 December 2014 ZU-FYB went airborne :D
Many thanks to Vans, Jan Hanekom for all the guidance and support, Andre Labuschagne for the paint and many hours of working with me, JP Snyman, my son Corne and wife for her patience during the building process and lastly to Marc Gregson for doing the maiden flight.

@ Jan, baie dankie vir al die opleiding en ondersteuning, dit het FYB gebring tot waar hy vandag is.
@ Hansgiant can wait to meet other RV12 pilots and do some formo flying. A SA RV12 team? :D
