Default Tech counselors near Anacortes

I’m in the early stages of my RV7 build (horizontal stabilizer prep), and fishing for local tech counselors. Looking to join the closest EAA chapter, but checking this venue too…

I know of two online communities full of friendly, helpful people who are always more than happy to answer questions and lend a hand - true communities, which are few and far between these days. One is VAF. The other one is Flights Above The Pacific Northwest.

So if you don't find a good answer here on VAF (or even if you do), I would encourage you to post on FATPNW and see what you get.

(If you get no answers from either place, which seems unlikely, then feel free to PM me and I can get you in touch with some EAA people at Harvey Field or Arlington who will certainly know someone who can help you).
RV-6, 6A, 7A, 9A, 10, & 12 pilot/co-owner. Aeronautical engineer, researcher, lecturer, author. Stanford, Boeing, etc.
Worked on wind-tunnel research, on design & modeling of rocket & jet engines, control systems for UAVs & spacecraft, jetliner maintenance planning, lab tests & computer modeling of innovative aero structures, future airplane design… But I have always wanted to work for a small company, on airplanes optimized for fun rather than profit, and no airplane is more fun than an RV!

Terry Burch at Arlington. Also, the EAA chapter at Skagit.

Also, Ken Krueger, one of Van’s former engineers is at Anacortes. Plus there are several builders near you.

If you have general questions or just want someone to look over your work, I’m in Mount Vernon. But, I’m not a tech counselor or A&P.

I am a DAR for EAB aircraft in the Northwest. Let me know if I can be of any assistance.
