Default Milestones

Maybe I?m just sentimental, but as I just passed 800 hours on the airplane I built, it gave me pause to think about some of the great memories this airplane has helped create. Of course my first thought was, ?why has it taken so long to put 800 hours on this machine?? But I know why, life gets in the way. Yet when I think of all the places I?ve visited, people I?ve given first rides, new friends I?ve made, and just plain fun I?ve had (no pun intended), it makes me realize how lucky I?ve been and what a unique experience it is to build and fly your own airplane. God bless all the builders out there, you?re a very special group.

800 hours and counting

She still grabs my attention sitting on the ramp.

Some days are just made for flying.
