Panther First Flight – Keith Rhode from Prior Lake, MN – SN016


While we were setting up at OSH 2018 Mr. Keith Rhode and his Corvair 3.3L powered Panther LS took to the skies for the first flight.  Here is a note from Keith.

“First flight was 7/23/18. Flight was uneventful except for a technical issue with the engine that was sorted out with prompt help from Dan, even tho he was at Airventure.  Now have 7 hours on a/c.  Controls are light and pitch trim is easily used and very effective.  With feet on the floor, ball is centered.  Well designed aircraft. Everyone who has seen and heard the engine start is impressed with the 3300 Corvair.  Time to start thinking about paint.”

Congratulations Keith!  We are very happy for you.
