Hello! My name is George Fahmy and I’m building a Van’s Aircraft RV-7 and I’ll be documenting my build on this website! Its going to definitely be a big project, but I think I should be able to handle it.
My callsign N890GF is a combination of my birth month/year/initials. I spent a long time debating what I wanted as my callsign, and after repeating this out loud over and over again, it just rolls of the tongue and thats when I reserved it with the FAA!
Ever since I was a young boy I knew I was going to be an engineer, I was drawn to taking things apart and putting them back together. I started flying remote control planes early on in life and when I got to college I began studying Aerospace Engineering. I also continued flying remote control planes and they kept getting bigger and bigger. When I graduated college and got my first job, I decided to pursue my pilots license and on March 16th 2016 I passed my checkride and became a Private Pilot! My dream of flying has become a reality, now I am trying to fulfill the other half of that dream which is to fly a plane I built myself.
I can’t wait to get to that point, but until then I’m glad to share my progress and this experience with everyone!
