Andy Werback's Legacy Project : About ready?

09 - 6 - 2006

Things have moved along well. The baffling was fabricated, painted and installed. Brian Stout did a much appreciated inspection. Only a few things were found wanting. Barry Turner did a transponder/static check which, amazingly, went fine. Otherwise, I've spent a couple of days going over all of the hardware again.

So today, Don Barnes helped me on the first engine start. YES, it fired up and ran first time. Checked instruments and taxied back to the hanger.

Next thing is Legacy flight training, but Lancair's Legacy is down for an engine change. Not sure what the plans will be, or when I'll move to Hollister.
