[/quote]Good luck John. Keep this thread alive for years to come. First flight of 2026 will come before you know. We will be there for the party
[/quote]


I was just hit by an idea: my first instructor and my inspiration was my Dad. His first flight lesson was in 1944 on what would later be my birthday
I'm going to shoot for a Sept 2025 date for my first flight.
that would have been his 100th birthday.

kinda makes me feel old when i put it that way

everyone is still invited to the party though...

Another gun jumper but ran across a N number that caught my eye and filled out on line reservation form.

anyone remember how long it takes the FAA to respond?

Site said something like 2-3 weeks

I think 2 weeks is about what it took earlier this year to get mine.

BTW: welcome to the adventure.

ok - getting ready to gut my garage and set up shop. i tend to be a little disorganized which i can get by with on small or short haul projects but feel the need to get organized for this one. I've searched this site and the web for layout ideas but most on the web are geared for woodworking.

can any one advise a good book or source for design options.

Nope. Keep it that way welcome to the Disorganized Club. Since you voluntarily cut one year off your build time I suggest get the empennage kit, get basic cheap tools online or borrow and start pounding the rivets in the kitchen. A closet door is a great workbench for a beginner. Research the web at work. You have only 2,100 days left before first flight
