EAA One Week Wonder on Tour in Central Florida: March 2015

Vancouver Island

I am spending February on Vancouver Island escaping the bitter cold in southern Ontario. Are there any builders on the Island? I would love to see your project and offer free advice ... or find out you know more than I do and learn from you. I have 600 hours on my 701 since first flying it in March of 2011. You can contact me at ch701@duncansoftware.com
