I wish I would have found your web page about two and a half years ago. I'm now completing my Zenair Zodiac 601HD, and I'm sure I could have learned a lot from the wisdom/experience in these forums. I am retired Air Force and retired from Penn State University in 2006. I have always loved aviation and worked at Piper in the 1970's at both Lakeland and Vero Beach. It was always my desire to build my own airplane, and now I'm only a few months away from starting my testing and getting the plane signed off. I look forward to learning from all the great information provided by this group, and I also look forward to meeting some of you at flyins. I am located in Boone, NC, and hope to be airborne sometime in the spring of 2020. I look forward to being part of the organization.
