This site and its members are sustaining my faith. I'm at Flabob Airport in Riverside, CA.
Andrew, it will take you about 30 minutes in to the pre req class on Saturday for you to realize just how inadequate the sport air clinic was. By Monday night at one of the local micro brews in Eugene, youíll ask yourself why you didnít just do this in the first place. The only good thing I got out of two days at Sport Air was a little knowledge on tools and some familiarity with terminology, most of which could have been gained on this site and watching Clevelands videos on YouTube. That was about it. Synergy is an incredible experience. There are some really great people there. I really wanted to build the whole airplane with their assistance, but circumstances presented that allowed me to bring the kit home.
Enjoy Eugene, hopefully it doesnít rain everyday. . .
I am not really in the LA Basin, KVIS actually. But I am down there every week, so if anyone needs a hand give me a shout, and Iíll see if I can work something out.
