This was our 4th airplane, first homebuilt (by original owner), and by far the most reliable and economical we have owned. We have put about 400 hours on it since buying it in 2007

The POH has been kept up-to-date and is available in PDF. Fuel burn numbers are from the engine manual and I consistently do better than listed with LOP operation at 65% power or less.

"Always" hangared, which means always except for a few months on hangar waiting lists over the past 11 years I have owned the airplane.

Everything in my hangar goes with the airplane if you want it. That includes all the tools to do routine maintenance, wing jacks, etc
