How about an update.

Kathy and I flew into Clow for breakfast last week. I wanted to check out the new runway and Kathy wanted to check out where Chicago Center is in Aurora. Our son is an enroute controller in LA Center and he is transfering to Chicago Center next January. Kathy is helping him figure out where he is going to live.

I thought the new runway was terrific. Taxing was not an issue as the transition to the raised and leveled runway was gentle enough.  Breakfast at Charlie's was fun. Kathy had never been there.

Later in the week I received my finishing kit from Van's. This kit has the landing gear, engine mount, cowling and canopy. It also has a lot of misc interior pieces. I will order the engine and prop along with the firewall forward items soon.

When Kathy agreed to the plane, she had one condition. This time it had to have real seats instead of just the uncovered foam pads I have in the Sonex. They are now on order, along with the seat belts. Mission accomplished!

Back to building!
