Default Hanger Flying

Building a plane is a very long process. With lots of boring work and occasionally a "big day" Like when you get to sit in the fuselage for the first time or buy your motor or finish a wing, My big day came yesterday as I move into the future home of my cozy. I rented a hanger at the Twin falls airport. The plane is probably a year away from first flight but the rental price was to good to pass up. I will store my boat in it and a couple of machines from my business so I can write some of the expense off my taxes. But it was a great feeling to be able to drive out to the airport and open my own hanger after almost 5 years of building. STeve build on

"Well congratulations" Big Steve -one step closer and besides that a year passes very quickly aleast mine do. When I open my garage doors all I see is a Cgs Hawk classic and pics of a Cozy's and Longez's I wish I was @ your point in time I guess I need to get the Hawk out in backyard build a cover for it and start spreading some epoxy in the garage . Like I said a year will go by fast and you will be flying KOOLRAY

That's GREAT Steve! Very cool. I must say it is NOT as convenient as working at "home" by a lonnnnng shot, but it IS WAY COOL to go to the airport and open your own hangar with all ones plane stuff going on in there.

Good to hear you are in the home stretch. It is all downhill now. Bet your wife is happy to get rid of all the sticky and smelly mess out of the house .
Try to get all the wet stuff done by the winter. Hangars are cold place to work in the winter. Looking forward to see you at the fly-ins one day.
