Default Any Southern California RV-14 Builders?

I'm interested in talking/swapping lies/networking with any locals nearby (LA/SFV/Orange County area) who are currently building a -14. Other RV models OK too.

Anyone out there?

In two weeks I travel to Synergy Air in Eugene to start on the empennage and tail cone of a 14-a. Your nervousness is shared. Two days at sportair workshops was invaluable; If I knew 100x that much I'd feel better yet. I enjoyed the logbook photos of your first 99 hours of building. Keep it up, please. This site and its members are sustaining my faith. I'm at Flabob Airport in Riverside, CA.

Hi Art,

I am building a 14A in Walnut. Currently working on the tail cone. Nice to know I am not the only crazy one in Southern Cal. Anyone want to meet up to check on each others progress. PM me.

James

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.
