Zenair News...

The latest issue of Zenair News arrived yesterday. Jon did a good job, as always! There's something about seeing video of someone else having completed their aircraft that's always encouraging.

The latest copy of the Zenair News just arrived. I'll have to watch the DVD, as soon as I can beat the rest of the family off the TV. Boy, that DVD is a really great idea for those of us who can't read!

I don't know why this should make me feel elated, since this is hardly critical at this point in time. Somehow, though, it seems like a rite of passage of some sort. Hopefully, N274AJ will be in test sometime next year!

Maybe it's encouraging, since the rest of the day has been full of bent or broken parts. :)
