Thanks! Patterned it somewhat after the 2016 Canadian demonstrator Hornet. The black and yellow is paint. The red is vinyl as are the roundels, flap checkerboard and marks.

I fly out of CNC3 Brampton.

Default Brampton!

I look forward to seeing it in person, I’m out of Oshawa. I’ll pop down and see you in the spring when the deep freeze is over . Are you current or ex-airforce? We have the same engine-prop set up, some formation flying would be fun.

Looking forward to seeing you as well.

No military background...just liked the look of that Hornet.

We have a group of guys that usually fly out Wednesdays for lunch somewhere and Saturdays for breakfast or brunch if the weather is flyable. Might be able to meet at a destination some time. Not much flying this winter so far.

Not quite done as I have to add the wheel pants, but I thought this picture was worth sharing.

Default Just waiting for the permit to test on my 7

Hi all

I thought that I should show the group my completed 7, I am awaiting the paperwork for the permit to test. Hopefully not long. I am greatful to all on the forum for invaluable information over the four and a half years of tears and joy.







Thank you Doug for a great resource.

Ian
