New! My beloved RANS S-10 is For Sale.
I earned my private pilot's license in 1987. Learning to fly was one of the most challenging things I've done, but also one of the most rewarding. I highly recommend it!
I started taking aerobatics lessons in the summer of '87, shortly after going for a very memorable ride in a Curtiss P-40 at the Experimental Aircraft Association convention in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. I found aerobatics to be thrilling, challenging, scary, and tremendously satisfying.
In the fall of '87, I started looking for an airplane to build myself. In January 1988, the first shipment of parts for my RANS S-10 kit arrived, and I began fulfilling the lifelong dream of building my own airplane.
Please feel free to check out pages I've set up which talk about aerobatics, describe my airplanes, tell you about building your own airplane, and point to flying-oriented web sites.
