A crucial step

20 Mar

Today I received my very first airspace waiver to cover the test flying of the aeroplane. A huge.. I mean HUGE step forward and a weight off my mind. OK I’m not appoved for everything but I have at least proved the system works and that I understand it.

Also.. I was struggling how to pack the engine for shipping. Bryn took one look and told me the best way, which now seems bloody obvious but I didn’t see it. Another weight off my mind.

The annual is all done so now the plane nervously awaits its dismantling.

Shipping is sorted through Tauranga.. avoid the Auckland mess !

Insurance sorted

Carnet applied for

Container booked,

its getting down to the business end.

For the rest of the blogs I am moving to a different system. It will make life a lot easier since the new method is available from my iPad or iPhone.

So if you want to follow, be sure to bookmark..

I live in New Zealand with my lovely wife Vicki along with our animals on a block of land in Helensville. Back in 1994 I had this crazy idea to build a plane. Since then its been a huge part of my life. My day job has varied over the years. I started out as a computer engineer and now I'm an airline pilot. You would think that would tire me of flying but airline flying isn't really flying. The small planes are fun and make me remember why I started flying in the first place. This blog is a demonstration of some of the crazy ideas that pop into my head from time to time. The way I see it, life is too short to not give these wild ideas a go. I don't mind if people think I'm crazy. I probably am.
