Ed Martinson’s RV6

Aircraft Story of the Month

Ed Martinson’s RV6, outside Ed’s hangar at VCB.  Ed’s routine, as I remember it, was to roll her out, do his pre-flight which included removing every bug hit and polishing the windscreen.  Ed proved that this aircraft was of strong and stout construction as he loved to pull 3G turns in the pattern.

Ed’s RV6

Hi,My name is Ed Martinson. I am a member of EAA Chapter 1230 at the Nut Tree Airport, Vacaville, CA and an EAA Technical Counselor. SacRVators was created late in 1991 byRV Aircraft enthusiasts, and I have been the Chief Potentate of the club since then. In 1991 I started my RV-6 and had the first flight in 1994. It had an O-360, constant speed prop, and I flew it for 17 years and 1260 hours. When it was becoming more difficult to get my medical renewed, I sold N360EM in August of 2011. The new owner has updatedit with leather upholstery and a glass panel. I miss it very much.

OUR NEXT FEATURED AIRCRAFT I have not received any requests to feature aircraft in upcomming website editions. I have a few photos of my RV-4, and will use them if none of you gets busy and sends me some photos and a story. I get kind of bored looking at my aircraft and would prefer to see other aircraft and pilots feature. Please help out and get some pictures to me....
