I completed my RV-8 standard kit in 29 months, learning a tremendous amount in the process. There's no need to spend the time & money to truck your project to a distant completion center. Let me assist you, in your own shop, on whichever tasks you'd like to complete in short order. Mounting the wings? Cutting the canopy? Plumbing the engine? Whatever you need done, we'll complete together while you get the benefit of working with someone who's 'been there; done that'.|
