I got 10% off a thunderbolt IO-390 at Sun-N-Fun and another $2000 off for purchasing the engine with the prop ... there is a 3-4 month lead time on IO-390s, already got the prop. I won't even need either until close to the end of the year but couldn't pass up on the savings.

I was wondering if one you guys could measure the distance between wing root and the canopy sill. The 12 is 8" and I am wondering how much higher the 14 is? Just curious how much higher I will have to haul my big feet over the sill?

Hey Chris, can you measure from the top of your spar carry through to the canopy sill for me?
