Building and Flying Info / Your Profession / Other Background Info
Some private pilot time years ago and Evektor just this past 12 months. Physician.
Home Airport (ie. KMYJ)
Harvey field, Snohomish, WA

I have completed the tail structures, flaps, slats, firewall, and I am now working on the aft fuselage.  I spend about 20-24 hours a week unless out of town.  I also bought a lightly used Rotax 912 ULS and it will be arriving here in Edmonds, WA in mid February. 

With the fuselage skins connected, it is starting to resemble a real airplane!! Yeah! 

The Rotax purchase fell through and so I bought a Viking 110.  As of today, November 26, 2020, my aircraft has 220 hours w/o mishap.  My Viking is a terrific engine.  The stol 750 is a joy to fly.  I changed from the bungee to the Zenith donut front suspension and have found my rudder is so much more facile.  Now to expand my horizons.
