At 81, I feel that I would not pass the next physical for a continuance of my license to fly, and I don’t want to take the chance of not being able to take advantage of LSA. In 2001 the bird was awarded the 3rd place Bronze Lindy at Airventure. I've been blessed to have flown this beautiful bird from coast to coast, and it has done so with very few problems. I hesitate to try and give anyone an absolute as to the speed of this little bird, but suffice it to say that it will get you there fairly quickly and in reasonable comfort.


I would suggest to anyone, if they can, to come and see/fly this great airplane -- if you have a current license, I can fly with you!!
