Default Itís officially an airplane

I got my airworthiness certificate on Monday. Dave Prizio (on the right) flew in from Chino to do the inspection. Thank you sir. And thank you to Doug and this site for all the information shared that got me through the project. Now looking forward to transition training and getting started with Phase 1.

Default Phase 1 at KWJF

Thanks Rico. Iím looking for a short term space at KWJF to do Phase 1. A corner that a 7A can fit into is sufficient. I have a few leads, but nothing solid so far. Let me know if you have any contacts there I could make inquiries to.
