Default Kids and RVs

Just curious how many folks get their kids involved in the build. Tabetha has been helping me for the past few years. Sure, everything takes longer but she enjoys it so much it is well worth it! Here is Tabetha when I got the tail kit.





Here she is tonight helping out. She is finally strong enough to use the cleco pliers.



Show us your pics of kids helping out with the build.

Here is a picture of my litttle guy helping with the FAB on the new engine.\


And here he is "enjoying" a flight, out cold, or as he said, "Daddy, I wasn't sleeping, I was looking outside."

(Yes, his booster seats fits up front with the stick in place.)

Default I love having my kids in the shop...

My son Chase loves to help deburr junk parts...


Here's what happens when dad takes the deburring tool and says it his turn
(I should have ponied up for two of those little yellow tools


My son Levi, who has had the most active role in helping build, is helping me inventory my wing kit.

Little baby Kenna came out to test out the Classic Aero seats last weekend, then she was inspecting my panel labels. Probably gonna need some seat wedges!
