Congratulations to both of you. Enjoy that retirement. Well earned and deserved.

Thanks to both of you for your hard work over the years for us. And thanks to Scott for his honest posts on VAF despite the occasional blowback by the argumentative types (and I do abide by Vno, except above 10,000' of course! ).

From the staff at TS/AS Flightlines, we too offer our congratulations to Brian and Scott. Both me contributed greatly to Vans Aircraft, and they will be tough to replace.
Enjoy retirement guys!

Thanks to everyone for the kind words, and I am sure Brian would say the same if he was active on VAF forums.

I fully intend to stay active in the RV community so I will still be around the forums. I have been a DAR for about 1.5 years now, and will continue with that work for both LSA and E-AB aircraft along with pre-buy inspections and other occasional projects in support of RV builders and owners.

I hope to continue to be involved at Van's as well, but just on a less structured / occasional basis.
Greg and I have discussed working on more how to videos, so hopefully having a more freed up schedule will provide some available time for that as well.

That would be great. Your video on how to mount and glass in the windscreen was very helpful, and came at exactly the right time in my build process. And mine turned out perfectly, due mainly to the excellent tips in that video.

And thanks for the fuel tank sealing video!!

They figured it out... that's how retirement should look! Still young and fit enough to enjoy the time off!
Me...I'm still trying to figure out how to make that work.... Count me as jealous!

Congrats you guys!

Scott, your words of wisdom on this forum was of immense help when I was building. I always put you in the "this dude knows his ****" category.

Enjoy retirement!
