    Hi folks!
    EAA Chapter 461 successfully delivered our Give Flight project to AirVenture today, thanks to the dedication of a team of aviators and builders from 461 and Chapter 95. I'll post more details later (just got home from a very sad family event in England) but am so proud of the guys for working with the Illinois Aviation Museum, the local community, and importantly local businesses who sponsored our efforts.

    Importantly we have created a flying club called AccessAero out of the plane and equity members will fly basically at cost plus reserve - a HUGE saving over local rates, and a rare opportunity for pilots to fly a brand new Light Sport aircraft - there are very few cost effective ways to do this in the Chicagoland area. Check out the web page and if you are local and are interested please do reach out to me by PM, or Andrew. See here for contact info http://accessaero.org/

    Here's a picture of Gary our main builder (WHY IS IT UPSIDE DOWN!!!) - more to come when I recover a bit.

    You're welcome Wayne, you're always encouraging my build so what goes around comes around.

    If I ever get underway myself, maybe next year, give me a yell and see if I can help out.
