Found Hicks airfield. It's about 5 driving hours from my house.

Thanks for the quick reply. Sorry to hear about the accident.

The photos show your cowling to look much like the Zenvair one. Is yours Corvair conversion powered?

Would like to talk some time, but my urgent intent is to check my physical fit in the 601 cockpit. I'm 6'3, 195 lbs and wear a size 13 shoe. I don't fit well in everything. Specificially I need to know if I need to change to the 650 canopy or make other mods to be confortable in the cockpit.

Hi Jay,

I heard through the grapevine that your Lil Bruiser had an off-field landing with another pilot at the helm. Is he okay and how did the plane fare?

No not yet, I'm still subsonic. I think I have to fiddle with the prop pitch a little. ;)
