Flying the Lizzie

Call it procrastinating, call it playing, call it whatever you like….. but I am having so much fun with this WORK of arranging out-of-the-way landing zones for the Lysander, that I have trouble getting work done. And still the ultralights to pack, Tongass Manual to finish, tons of work for…

Lizzie flies !

Yup, FINALLY. This evening I flew my first circuit with the Lizzie, at long last. That’s the good news. Is it up for sale yet? Hell no! That’s the bad news. What we have flying now I’d call the Alpha Version, and we want to turn it into Beta as…
