601 xl-b has made last flight

Such a total joy to have flown.
Can't say where I go from here but not into the sky with N2257.

The airframe and engine have performed well and I couldn't be happier.  To those of you in the building process I say keep at it and do…

First Flight

Special Thanks to Doug Dugger for performing the First Flight on my 701 this last Friday.  He and Steve Smith flew down to my cow pasture runway to perform the first flight.  All Went perfectly.  What a joy to see five years of work go airborne.
