January was a slow flying month due to the cold weather as well as the propeller spinner project I have been working on.
I did manage to get a couple local flights in before getting the propeller back on.
Finally finished the new spinner and flight tested it. Looks and works great!! Probably wont get any speed out of it but if feels smoother and looks excellent. Thanks to Martin Skiby for the main cone.
We got a little local flying done this month to include the first flight with our dog, "Winston". He handled it fine. Next month will be the Bahama Bash to Exuma island and then down the Grand Turk.
We attended the 2018 Bahama Bash for the 5th year. Flight to Exuma and back went great. We flew from Ft Pierce Fl with the Turner's in formation with their Longeze. we had 5 canards attend and 6 planes in all. thanks to Curtis aand Christine Wray for planning it all!!
I got some local flying in as well as flew up to north Atlanta for my youngest daughters graduation party. Its been a very rainy month so we have had a lot of down time.
A very rainy month but did get out a few times. Aircraft was down for a couple weeks to install a glass leaf spring trim system. So far I see it much stronger with more overall trim control than the old cable and spring set up.
we were not able to get to Oshkosh this year and the weather also kept us from a Jekyell island trip so July was just filled with some local flying. and I did add a removable handle that aids in moving the aircraft around and into the hanger.
Spent august getting the Airplane ready for the Kanab Fly-In trip at the beginning of next month. I did some local flying and was able to fly with my daughter and give a first time ride to a friend. Also we will be getting a new hanger floor in Sept!!!
Kanab Fly-in.....great pics to come!!!!
