Congrats!!!

I know what your feeling, I moved to the hanger a couple weeks ago after 8 1/2 years. I still get a funny feeling and shake my head when I walk in the garage, I know it's in a better place but miss it being at home. On the other hand I'm going to get used to a warm and snow free garage for my daily driver this winter!
Good luck on final assembly!

Well after imagining engine noise while listening to rivets, first start day is here! The engine was purchased used almost five years ago after sitting in the desert for almost as many years.
Can't say enough good things about LPS, pulled a jug and the cam looked great. Had the FI rebulit by KPS airmotive in Santa Clarita,CA and off we go!

Default Off we go :)



After almost 7 years N314SY takes to the sky for the first time!
Slight heavy left wing, a few oil leaks on the mid-time engine but otherwise a great flight!
