Received my Special Certificate of Airworthiness from Transport Canada Today.
3 1/2 years of pushing myself and learning new things. Wow, what a ride that has been!

Today is the 6 year anniversary of opening up the rudder box in my living room and drilling the first hole. Even though I only get to work on weekends, and on weekends outside of the summer when it isn't 110+, I had kinda thought I'd be done by now. But if I've learned one thing on this project is to take all estimates and double them: and expect it to take longer than that.
