A big day on April 13th as we pulled the CH750 out of the hangar and started the engine. The 0200 roared to life and sounded like a million bucks. We ran the engine for about 15 minutes, then shut down and back in the hangar. The last remaining items are so simple (and small). I have three bugnuts coming from Spruce to attach mixture, carb heat and cabin heat. I safety wired everything last night. Once the bugnuts are installed it's time to weigh, complete weight and balance exhibits and submit paperwork for AW. My DAR has been out twice and tells me that it takes about one business day to get FAA assignment to inspect. I hope to be in the air this weekend but am going to wait for that great early morning condition for first flight. I checked my construction log this morning. 632 hours since that first cleco back in October of last year. Being retired, I have been able to build every day. The hardest part was waiting for parts that were not yet available. It's been a great experience. I'll report on first flight soon.
