That?s my goal too, given that all of my candidate airports are about 45 minutes away. I want to do as much at home as I possibly can before going to the airport, so I installed the wings to do some fitting and drilling and running fuel lines. I?ll probably put them on again to verify wiring and such before the trip to the airport.
Anything that has to be done after the move comes with 1.5 hours of driving. Ideally, I?ll get there, bolt the wings and tail on, and run the engine.
