Thread: Solo to Alaska

    Default Solo to Alaska

    I just completed a solo round trip from Denver to Alaska in the Kitfox. I posted a link on the Matronics list which leads to the trip log on my web site. For those who may want to visit, the link is:

    I read every word. I loved it. I just bought a model IV and will fly it solo for the first time this month. (God and my instructor willing) My instructor and good friend flew from Omaha to Deer Park Washington in it and I have never been happier.Thanks for sharing your story, I will look forward to writing one of my own someday.

    Question Re: Solo to Alaska

    Thanks so much for your hard work on this. I'm building a 5 and have been overwhelmed. I have new energy to start again from your thread. have tried to get local fox owners to give some time to me but most dont have time for poor pilots that can't afford a fast build. KEEP IN MIND; I WILL FINISH AND HELP ALL WHO ASK ME IN THE FUTURE

    Kitfox5,
    How long have you been at it? I know exactly what you are saying about gathering new energy to start. I was at it for 6 years (on and off)...Like many things that are greatly rewarding, it's a mental game as much as a physical one. Hang in there and try to do a little each day...even if it is one thing. (Don't know how many times I got that pep talk). All I can say...IT IS WORTH IT!
    I am 9 hours away from having my 40 flown off and went flying with a buddy this morning as a 2-ship flight for the first time. What an experience! Looking forward to leaving my FAA assigned "sand box".
    I would encourage any builders within this brothers area to help out. You all know what I'm talking about if you have built your own plane...it sure helps to motivate. And if you are flying, I cant' tell you how much it helps to get a ride if even for just an hour on the weekend...Hey, I bet Kitfox5 would even pay for the liquid gold!
