This last weekend I flew to Dayton, OH (from southern Wisconsin) with my Dad to visit my brother - 258 NM. On the way back the Hobbs meter went over 100 hrs. Whoo Hoo!
Had Todd Davis from the Milwaukee FSDO come to do my airworthiness inspection this AM. Super nice and super helpful!Thank you both FAA and EAA for the great documentation and support. WOW!

For anyone just starting out or almost finished, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the EAA's Amateur Built Certification Kit.

SUPER helpful!
