Default Airworthy!

November Five Niner Lima Gulf received its airworthiness certificate yesterday afternoon at the hands of NY based Jon Ross. There were a few too many threads on a bolt here and a missing placard there, but overall it was a painless process. Many thanks to my Dad and the entire crew at EAA chapter 1250. They were a huge resource during the final push at the end.

The minimum number of planes one should own is one. The correct number is n+1, where n is the number of planes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of planes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

Thumbs up Cool!

Congratulations! We've turned to your build site many times in our quest and appreciate you sharing your build. I hope you get some time in the plane before the move and that all goes well!
