    You are correct. I went back and looked at the instance I cited and found it was actually a different owner/builder by the same name with a very similar registration number. My mistake.

    Wow. Sorry if you saw my post as an attack. It certainly wasn't meant to be. It was meant to say "If I can, so can anyone else." And went into a bit of detail as to how I have been able to own...

    My advice is to fly a rental to learn to fly. Students are notoriously hard on aircraft (both air frame and engine), so put that thrashing on the rental plane. Additionally, there is so much you...

    Of course the EAA doesn't allow the chapter to have a flying aircraft, so often times it spins off a club for ownership, but that's another discussion.
