Hi Tim,
Is that Stewart that I see in the left hand seat? Must say that she really is looking superb. Best of luck with your WHISPER. We're not too far behind you... :D :D :D :D

very chuffed

first flight the CHT went up. We landed and after debating the manufacturers instructions, adjusted the timing and it was perfect from then on. Absolutely great to fly, managed to keep it straitish on the runway and worked out what the handbreak was for (great device that).

stewart done a great job

the weather was crap in Cape Town, so I was very lucky to fly as much as I did at paradise, Saturday was windy and turned into a beautiful evening. I must say I have come to think your coastline is very beautiful ... but I can't enjoy it too much, Stewart has told me to go west. Cant wait to bring GAA home. Got a 'beeg' hangar ready and waiting.

Can't wait, we've hit a little snag. We're too heavy on the tail wheel and need to make new engine mount, to move engine about 120mm forward!!!
Cheers
Philip

GAA is officially no longer a project. This is the last post here, she will now appear on the out and about page!
