After being furloughed from an airline during COVID, I purchased a partially completed kit from a builder’s widow that had passed away some 5 years prior. After about 10 months of full time effort N998PC was born.

Some modifications include electric flaps, electric 2 axis trim, AeroVee Turbo, and full castoring tailwheel. The most enjoyable part for me personally was the paint application process. I used a small compressor, automotive paint and a cheap HVLP gun and it turned out great. The first flight was February 7, 2023 and went very well. I had been expecting to run into at least a few problems along the way, but everything up until this point has gone very well.
