These are from a
flight with my mentor from a grass strip (Lac à Gilles) to Mascouche.
The flight is quite short, but things like this give me a strong
motivational push to continue.
ones are of my kids testing a friend's project for comfort. Before
being rebuilt with aluminum, this was an Emeraude; normally a wooden
aircraft. Pierre, the builder (and my RAA inspector), kept the
original wings, but is installing a retractable gear. The fuselage
is being entirely rebuilt with aluminum. He installed a RV-6
canopy. Oh... why rebuilt? Some years ago, we had an ice storm
which caused a lot of damage to our electrical distribution system.
One pole fell right on Pierre's aircraft... the fuselage was a total loss
and was not covered by the insurance company.
pictures of my kids and project as it was getting fun.
