At our February meeting presenters will be Dennis Crider and Glenn Shields who will share their experiences operating and flying their RV12’s. Dennis and Glenn were recognized at our Christmas meeting for their completion and first flights and about a year ago shared with us their ups and downs as first time airplane builders. Now with a year of experience and 200 flight hours between them they will cover some of the hiccups, operating experiences and travel adventures they have had. Their RV12’s are home garage built Light Sport airplanes powered by an 100HP Rotax engines and all glass instrumentation; there was much to learn for these pilot/builders as they transitioned from the 70’s vintage airplanes they were familiar with. A special plus is that a ride in one of their RV12’s will be offered to the winning raffle ticket!
