Default Two more -10s airworthy

N616JJ got it's pink slip after 4 1/2 years. On the same day my hanger owner and good friend got his pink slip for his -10 (N710LE). Two in one day and both out of the same hanger at 2M2 which is in central Tennessee. Our DAR was Gary Meuer from Tullahoma area. Great guy!
Almost a bit of a let down after working so hard to accomplish this huge task.
We also got our repairman certificate a few days later. The Nashville FSDO was really great to work with. Turned out to be a nonevent with just paperwork to fill out.

I didn't know the 'roo skinners had their own occupy movement. Nice job on the RV-20 by the way.

Congratulations!! Once you start taking some trips, maintenance, cleaning and waxing, it won't be so bad. I don't miss building one bit. I built to fly with the family and get away from rentals.
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
