    Clear winter day over Darrington, WA

    Stunning! You've had 'biblical' wet weather recently! Proper rain and not just mist - my finance team is in Bellevue and I get here every 8 weeks or so.

    N685L for sale

    Thanks smt! N685L has the raised turtle-deck and at 6'4" it fits me like a 'tight glove'. The Sonerai is a 'pilots plane' that's quite simple to work on. You fit the profile - some hours in a Citabria or Cub and you'd be at home in the Sonerai. Just need to figure out how to raise your...

    N685L for sale

    Safety related - a buyer planned to fly the plane to California without TW experience, a plan of any kind or survival gear. Unrealistic expectations from a 200 mile range, 130mph airplane if you don't have experience, time and common sense.

    Purchase Question

    James, For a project (so an plane that hasn't had an airworthiness certificate before) you'll need to prove the aircraft has been built 50% by the builder when complete - build logs/pictures.

    Dave Wilcox's N136DE has a new home

    Chucker - what was your OAT? CHT's for running on the ground for 25 mins are OK - where are you measuring CHT...head nut of spark plug? OIl - mine doesn't get above 190. I block the oil 'smile' air intake too. It'll run cooler when flying - 210 on the ground after 25 mins is fine. For first...

    I used the Stewart System and found it to be very good. Covering was fun, painting...not so much!

    New guy interested in building

    Welcome! Kennyw summed it up well! Read the plans, newsletters (on CD I assume), choose the engine and talk with the people at those companies. Search this site top to bottom including the gallery - you'll find lots of answers.
