My haul of clecos, drill bits and various other things arrived from Brown Aviation Tools today! Big, heavy box!
I’ve spent about 2 years trying to find my first airplane. Although I’ve been a member of an active C-172 club since 2007, I’ve always wanted a plane to call my own, to take out whenever I want, wherever I want, and for as long as I want – just like you’d expect from your car.
I’ve done a long search (at least 2 years), looking at both used planes and a variety of kit planes, and finally decided that The Airplane Factory Sling 4 was the best fit for me – both physically for my height (6’6″), and for the “missions” I plan to fly.
Construction begins in April in our garage. In the mean time, I’m preparing my work space and acquiring the various tools and supplies I’ll need to start!
