The aircraft took 16 months and 1,800 hours to complete. It was certifi cated and fi rst fl own in June 2014. It is powered by an IO-375 engine pro- ducing 205 hp and swinging a constant-speed propeller. The airplane has a 38.5-foot wingspan and leading edge slats and cruises at 85 mph with a 6-gph fuel burn. It lands at 22 mph. RV-9A, N987J Brice Johnson is the owner and builder of this RV-9A. The air- plane received its airworthiness certifi cate in December 2013, and its fi rst fl ight occurred in February 2014. The airplane took nine years to complete.
