Scott is a private pilot who has been flying for over 30 years. He and his wife began construction of an RV-8A in 1996, though progress was delayed with the birth of their three kids. After partnerships in an Aeronca Champ and Cessna 140, N889BS flew for the first time in October 2003 after seven years and 1500 hours of construction. Having now flown the RV for 20 years, Scott hopes to soon trade the “all natural” color scheme for real paint. Maybe!
