Just want to make sure I clear something up because I digressed during the chat. I was saying it was time for me to go down the management route as new test pilots and engineers come into the team. So now I push paper =( and do a lot of TPS reports just like in the movie Office Space. At least I am not in the basement looking for my stapler (yet).

The information that I post is just that; information and my own personal experiences. You need to weigh out the pros and cons and make up your own mind/decisions. The pictures posted may not show the final stage or configuration. Build at your own risk. Further more, these are my opinions and not those of my employer.

Default Axel

Just want to give a big thanks to Axel and of course the others for a great formation clinic at Madera this year. All the experienced pilots were very generous with their time (and fuel). I will definitely pay it forward when the time comes!
