Attendance was a little light at our May Pancake Breakfast, but it was an enjoyable morning. We had several visitors and visiting aircraft.
Kip Laurie dropped in with his Kolb FireStar. Kip completed the aircraft in 2000 and has been flying it for ten years. He is also building a Sonerai, but says he’s keeping the FireStar. Additional photos in Kip’s Gallery.
Patrick Horvath flew his beautiful Citabria. Patrick is a former Navy and current professional pilot and will be the subject of our next Member Profile. Additional photos in Patrick’s Gallery.
No doubt, Billy Waters has spent more time helping our other builders than building his own plane. Here, Billy installs his prop in preparation for his soon-to-be first flight. More photos in Billy’s Gallery.
The next project to take flight may well be Dick Seiders’ RV-12. Dick reports that the wings will be mounted this week, and canopy work is under way. More photos in Dick’s Gallery.
Our Chapter has FOUR projects that are within weeks of flying — Dick Seider’s RV12, Bill Bailey’s RV-7A, Billy Water’s RV-4, and Chris Metzger’s Metzger Special. Stay tuned for first-flight announcements and photos!
