Keith, Sure come by and visit. Saturdays after 2PM or Sundays after 3PM. During the week is no problem I am self employed so I can do as I please all the way to 6PM. Looking forward to meeting you. here is my cell # 575-418-0685.
My GPS track data shows I passed within 3 miles of your house at 9:53 am. I was coming south from Centennial (KAPA) on my way to Pike's Peak. The picture was taken 3 minutes after that at 9:56 am. I flew within .5 miles of the top of Pike's Peak at 10:03 am.
By the way, later that same day I flew all the way home. I got into Santa Rosa about 10:00pm. Talk about a long flight!
Sorry to be so slow in acknowledging your comment... I need to check in more often! My 750 project (building from a kit) is going well. The empennage, wings, slats, and flapirons are done for the most part, and the rear fuselage is almost done. I hope to get a hangar at FNL (Fort Collins/Loveland), but the waiting list is long, so I might have to go to GXY (Greeley). GXY and FNL are both good airports, but FNL is a lot closer!
have a Garmin 495 GPS. After every flight I use the GPS information to update my pilot’s log book and I also download the track of the flight using Garmin’s Trip and Waypoint manager (also known as Map Source). I name the flight and save it to my hard disk. I also copy and paste the flight into my master track log which I also maintain in Map source. Sometimes I export a flight from Map Source in .GPX format which allows me to imported it into Google Earth where I can “re-fly” the trip.
I AM 6FOOT 2 . DIDN'T KNOW HOW SMALL IT WAS UNTIL I WENT TO THEIR OPEN HOUSE AND TRIED TO FIT. I COULDN'T. NOW THEY HAVE COME OUT WITH THE 750. I HAVE ALREADY ORDERED THE TAIL AND FUSELAGE AND CONTROL KIT.
