Hey fellow BCP'ers:
I was at the Just Aircraft facility in Walhalla yesterday, and you will never find a greater group of people. I was talking with Troy about my project and he kindly asked if I had ever flown one yet. Of course the answer was 'no', but that changed within about 5 minutes. There was an Escapade on the ramp, and we were off and flying. It was an unbelievable bird to fly: very responsive blah blah blah. It is everything I could have imagined in a plane.
Any day we fly is great, but to actually get on the controls of what I am building really made my day.
I'm so pumped after the flight that I can't wait to get back to SZP continue on N731XS. I just need to be sure she doesn't gain too much weight in the next few months.
You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive more than once.
