    Default Colorado Kitfox build site

    Well folks, I just finished my Phase 1 flight testing period last week. Looking forward to flying to Oshkosh this summer in my Kitfox along with my brother in his Kitfox. Here is a link to my build website:

    I looked at the 2019 progress. Two videos of you flying off the runway with a tail mounted camera. My first question is, Is that the planet Earth. Ive never seen such flatness.
    Congratulations! 10 more hours to go for me. Enjoy your Oshkosh trip.

    Congrats on your first flights. Nice looking plane!! IMHO you are doing right in making the flight to Limon - great runway and little to no traffic. Once upon a time, I had an engine failure there during a test flight of a twin engine, self launch glider. Couldn't have been at a better place.

    Hey Eric,

    Congrats! Now that you're free of your bounding box, if you need a destination, cruise down to Northern New Mexico. I'm still stuck in my box, so I can't get further north than Taos.

    Hi Brian,

    I'll put you down for one of my destinations for the near future. I appreciate the invite. Good luck as you work toward your 40 hrs!
