Went to Redmond to meet Josh Brungardt, CFI and HPAT Instructor, to get several hours of dual in Lancair's Legacy, N199L. Flew back last Monday with several stops along the way. Pretty speedy little airplane! On Tuesday, Josh inspected the aircraft and got ready to test fly it. After a couple of pit stops (change oily plugs and fix a partially clogged injector), he took to the air. Looked great. He reports that it handled well, just a few little adjustments needed. Next day, a few more hours of dual, then one more test flight, then my first try at it. Loved it - very nice, stable, but light and quick. Finally - Onwards!
