That's interesting. Chapter 179, the local chapter I'm in, was building a -12, but I understand from the 179 president that the chapter was informed by EAA that chapters can't own aircraft. I don't know the background, or why this would be, but that's what I was told. You might want to check this out with EAA sometime next year...

Default It's not the chapters plane

The chapter is building it. One of our members is paying for everything and when it's finished, he owns the airplane. I've been disappointed in the lack of interest from the area. I thought we would have several visitors from the metroplex. Still hoping the word will get out.

Now that's an innovative way to get something done, with experienced, knowledgeable people keeping an eye on the build. Maybe I can get my chapter to do something similar with my -14. Thanks for the idea!

I'd love to help but not when diesel is >$5/gallon ... a >100mi round trip from Dallas is a little rough. I will reach out to you when prices drop.

Where is it being built? Might be fun to fly up for a day every now and then if you're at an airport hangar..
