Arlington Airshow

The weather this year could not have been more perfect. Sunny and 70 made for a nice flight and beautiful day at the airshow. Answered many questions about the kitfox, spent some time in the vendor area with John and Phil and enjoyed the nice day.

Trip to Arlington Flyin

Orcas Island

With an amazing weekend of weather and an unprecedented sunny Easter we took off for Orcas Island this weekend. It’s my daughters favorite destination when flying. The airport is close to town and you can easily walk to the beach! The video below was taken with a GoPro camera mounted to the wing strut. It was taking stills every 10 seconds and then stitched into a movie greatly speeding up the return trip!

Evening flight

After all the rain and low clouds of the last few weeks I got a chance to get out and take a short flight. Just around the local area, buzzing a few of my friends houses and turning the sky around.

Back in the air with Kitfox V3

This is version three of my Kitfox 7. I shortened the wing tips using the “standard” tips, installed electric elevator trim and put 600×6 tires and wheel pants on. All of this gained another 6mph in speed so now I’m seeing 130mph TAS at 1500 ft.
