Default Good on you

We will all reach that point in our flying when it is time to hang it up. There are so many neglected aircraft around my home airport because people just can't seem to let go. Only you can decide when it's time to give it up. When my time comes I plan on passing my aircraft on to someone who can enjoy it as much as I have and not let it waste away on the ramp. Best to reach that decision when both the aircraft and myself are in one piece.

The deal is done, just waiting for pieces to fall into place. Meanwhile I fly.

Delivered RV-8 to new owner yesterday.

Had excellent flight with excellent landing on 1500' turf runway.

Am going out of TW ops with good feeling. Building and flying RV-8 was great experience.

Moving on with friends RV-12 project.

Thanks to all for kind words.
