Hi Richard, I'm in Colorado Springs, just started work on a 650. Planning on either a Rotax or UL Power, and ballistic chute. Got my SP license in 2011 at KAPA, but not much flying since! Using X-Plane and PilotEdge to work on my nav and communication skills.

Hi, Richard.  Not flying much lately.  Thinking of selling.  My bad back has worsened and leaves me unable to do a lot of things.  It's tough growing old (I am 82).   Jerry Griego in Socorro is much more active.

Richard,  I have used some of the stuff from the 601xl incomplete kit that I purchased, but if I have anything you could use, it would be cheap - the problem is the shipping.  Actually, I am an old Vietnam Nam vet and would give it to you since you are also a vet, the shipping would be the issue. I have used quite a bit of it in the new 650 kit that I am building - let me

know what you need and I’ll see what I have.
