I live in Kansas City now, and I'm about 2 days away from purchasing a flying -8. Can't wait!
Smart kids, they already know they don't want to spend their life in that awful cockpit!

Default My day job



I retired from the Royal Australian Air Force two years ago but I still put on the uniform for my work in the Active Reserve. One of my jobs involves a project where the RAAF provides assistance to the Indonesian Air Force in the area of aviation safety and airworthiness. This was my last trip to Indonesia with a KT-1B from the Indonesian Air Force formation display team, the Jupiters.

Yes, the KT-1B is very nice. One could be forgiven for thinking the South Koreans had copied the PC9 which I'm sure they didn't. Paint scheme is very close to our PC9s .. I watched one of their practice displays and if you didn't know you would swear it was the Roullettes up there.

G'day Warbo,

Careful - don't spend too much time working for the Reserve or your RV-7 build will drag on too long.

Regards to you both,

Haha thanks Rags .. It's a bit of a balancing act at the moment because the Reserve salary is paying for the aircraft

Cheers

Warbo,

I took the partial cash option on the pension to finance the kit. The downside is the reduced pension $ will run out sooner.

On On !
