2013 Wrap up

Posted by on February 28, 2014 at 10:30 PM

It's been almost a year since I posted here. I had a lot of great flying last year including another trip to Crossville TN for a Sonex flyin in October 2013. We had 40 Sonex aircraft attend. It was the largest gathering yet of Sonex aircraft.

Kathy wasn't able to fly with me much this summer but we had one great day together.  We got out early on a gorgeous day and flew to Davenport Iowa.

Kathy loves to look at rivers from the air so we flew out low and followed several rivers including the Rock river. Then we did some flying along the Mississippi at 3000' before refuelling and a leg stretch in Davenport. On the way back we headed for an early lunch at Rochelle and then sat around and watched the sky divers before heading home to Gary.

I flew N982SX up to Oshkosh again for AirVenture. While there, Kathy and I decided to build another plane - an RV-14.  I got a demo flight and we ordered the available kits. That plane is well underway in the garage.

It was time for my flight review in Novermber so chapter member Dan Walton went up with me and signed me off. He enjoyed being back in a Sonex now that his is sold. Dan also took me up in his Pitts this year which was a real treat.

It's now the end of February and I haven't been up since December 28 because of the snow and the cold. It also doesn't look like the weather is going to break soon either.  The itch to fly is going to need to be scratched soon!
