Default A really good one......

I watched that plane being built not far from me. Kept up with its progress regularly. Jack was a real craftsman, you have a very, very well built plane.
Good for you !

Good for you !

Im hearing that a lot. You guys are making me feel more and more confident in my decision. Lets just say i bought this on a good feeling about Charlie and at least I did speak to the A&P who has done the CI for the last 9 years. Scary thing, still have not even heard it run. That's going to change as soon as the spring decides to get to the south again.

Congratulations!!! Way to go. I wondered what ever happened to your project.

Glad to hear you're flying. Sometimes I wish I had gone that route.

Well Hello Gil ! Yes it took me awhile. I threw in the towel early on building. And going to take a while it loks like to find an CFI with 6A to get my 15hrs dual. Especially with this virus. May end up heading to Oregon for a week or so. Hope all is well in TX and with your build. NWA is growing too fast. LOL.

Hello and welcome aboard. You'll love this forum as much as I do !!

Great color, reminds me of my current Bumblebee !



You're just a couple hours away so if you're ever in our neck of the woods you can count on hangar space here by my plane

Enjoy every minute of your transition training. I learned so much during the process of getting comfortable in our 9A and became a better pilot for it.

We have a few extra Card Machine Works hats, one happens to be a standard yellow (looks paler in the picture than it actually is) and the other a very attention grabbing yellow. I'd be happy to send you one if you need it to finish the ensemble. Just send a PM with your address.
