No surprises. It is a very stable and predictable plane. I wasn’t able to get any time in type but I have a lot of time in Cherokees so I figured it would be close to that. It didn’t disappoint. It’s more maneuverable than a piper..I have just over 30 hrs on it now. No issues just enjoying the view,,,,!!

Looks great, congratulations, looked like a very smooth first flight, any surprises? Did you get any time in type (or a CH2000) before the first flight, and if so where? I can only hope that my 640 #117 will reach that point in a not too far future (a few years ...)
