I am going to take partial credit.
This is my wife's plane.

I am never trusted alone with this other woman!

nice Avid ragwing.. theres one in the back of my hangar at Te Kowhai NZ.
My machine is Avian Adventurer ZK-CKE - an aircraft I designed and built myself over 10 years. First flew 12th march this year. I'm being checked out to fly it by the test pilot at the moment. It flies really nicely but I'm still having issues getting the landings really nice (the plane flies better than I do!)

Way cool, Kiwi.  Not many people get to fly an airplane they actually built!  I like it!   |:)\

Here's one that is a few years old.  Yours truly on the ramp at Gwinner, North Dakota in front of my ride;  a Cessna 404.

Durn it!  I've forgotten how to resize pics so they fit on the screen in the forum!  Back to the drawing board with this idea...

I think this one will fit a little better.  Newlyweds RC and Mrs RC in front of the Cessna 421C I used to fly.  This was taken at North Platte, Nebraska.

Damn that must have been a long time ago!

Does this count anyway?

yeah, the full story involves some of that cyanide coffee of the other topic, but if it all goes well, I'll be going to a full upgrade program with schweizer 300s with bristow, up to and including NVGs, and then return to Guatemala to fly Hueys... should be fun

schweizer 300s with bristow,

 ::eek::  ::eek::  ::eek::

I'm sorry----hate to tell you, it may not be as good as you think---I have intimate knowledge....

Watch the credits closely  ::whistle:: ::whistle:: ::whistle::

should be fun

Nope... unless there have been radical changes, in my opinion the training is sub-standard and full of stupid HR rules. Have fun wearing a bicycle helmet while you pre-flight in case you fall over. You WILL look pretty stupid and will be the laughing stock of any visiting pilots.

But if you can survive Titusville---all will be good.
Life may not be the party we hoped for---but while we're here--we might as well dance..........
