We are building a -10 in Mobile (VERY SLOWLY).

Eric Cobb has just started a -14 in Pensacola and is making good progress.

Gregg Lyle is building a -14 (just started fuse) in Gautier and is making rapid progress.

Best of luck!
Mike

Thanks Mike! Looks like I will have ample opportunity to look at others builds. “But dear, I have to go to the beach to look at an airplane”.

Just finished my RV-7A in Huntsville area. First flight soon but Prattville is too far south during Phase I flying. Scott Carmichael, sclookout@aol.com, is building a RV-12 in Prattville. Just flew my RV-12 down to look it over for him a couple of weeks ago.

I don’t know him personally, but I know who he is. I’ll look him up too.

Sometimes I miss meetings, but you're certainly welcome to the ride. Remind me and we'll do it, or just call and come on down...office is 334-244-6400
