I don't see any!

Ok, maybe there is... perhaps it's just that as a dad I can't see past my son soloing! Really proud of that kid. Robert took the photo from the Taylorcraft while I flew. Was a GREAT flight! Robert was also kind enough to get a video of an entire flight with Scott flying with his Gopro onboard 2RN.

Too Cool.

It is a great feeling to have your kid solo. The Piet none the less. Fantastic.

Thanks! Getting him to solo was EASY. I just checked his logbook, about 8 hours total. He's really ONLY ever flown a Piet. Has about 40 hours now.

Getting him to take the written... got my hands full! My nagging isn't going to do a thing. His desire to take folks for rides... that may do it. Or the fact he has to wait for me to be home to fly, another thing in my favor! I told him once he gets his PPL, I'll give him the Piet. Fingers crossed!

It's a double whammie, giving him the Piet MAY finally ge me off my arse to build my own!

Tools,

I met Scotty at tool-stock '14. He's an amazing young man. I'm sure he'll have no problem with the written exam.

Tool-stock '15?

And in preparation for your new Piet you should visit Barnwell in November for the Corvair College.

Oh ya. Planning on Toolstock 15 South around late Feb or so.

Also planning on having a Toolstock North event here in OSH... no determinations on when yet though. Need to poll the crowd. That'll be a smaller event much lesser in scope.

OK! not only does this kid solo a Piet, but he can rib stitch and apply finishing tapes too ! And so can his girlfriend. Kid has the " Right Stuff ". Congrats Scott, I'm sure the old man can't get rid of that Piet grin...

Tools,

Guess what? That is the exact same way I got my Piet. Dad always told me that I could have it if I got my PPL. Well, in 1993 that happened but I was 32 not a 16 year old when I finally got my license. Dad followed through with his promise. He flew it for 21 years and I guess I have now had it 21 years. Wow, just realized that. That's something. I always thought that he was the best dad a guy could have. I guess that there are two of you now.

Awesome job for both of you,

Oh, My name is Scott too,

Wow, that's pretty cool! I'll pass it along to him.

Dan, thanks for getting the kids involved like you did. I'm always pretty nervous about pushing too hard, so it REALLY helps when someone else comes along and steps in like that.

For what it's worth, the goal here wasn't to praise my kid, but to show as many folks as possible that this CAN happen. Ole Scott and I don't see eye to eye on plenty, we've got a number of years of not much communication. He practically NEVER spent time in the shop with me as a kid...

I just planted the seed and WAITED! And waited, and waited and waited. Then one day, it just happened. We've had the best (and it was never BAD, just sort of normal for a dad and son with NEARLY the same interests...) relationship since. It has been fantastic to share this with him.

I always encouraged, but never pushed. ALWAYS exposed him to other aviation oriented folks and like Dan they nearly always would share as well.

I guess the point is, it's never too late. And you never know it's NOT going to happen. Nonetheless I am lucky! It DID happen and I don't take it for granted.
