As you might remember, last December I was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer (never smoked a day in my life). That, and the two brain tumor’s that came with it abruptly ended my flying career and forced a long and painful goodbye to N410CF that I had finished building a year earlier. I put out a call to the list and had many offers of help and advice.

The most significant help came from Dave Saylor and his plane partner Jim in the form of a 2 day visit back in March when they flew down to CCB in their RV10. With me propped up in a chair recovering from brain surgery… on their own time and on their own dime (including car rental and hotel) they performed a complete annual on the plane. And, when it was all over, organized and swept up the hangar. The only payment they accepted from me was lunch.

A few weeks later, I asked Dave if he was interested in helping me sell the plane. He talked it over with his family and said yes. In late May, he and Jim flew down again. Dave gave me one last ride in N410CF (this time from the right seat) and I said a tearful goodbye to my baby as I watched Dave fly her away.

Over the ensuing months, Dave methodically prepped the plane for sale, ran the ads, gave demo rides and negotiated the deal on my behalf. On September 22, escrow closed. N410CF has found a new home and I have a large chunk of cash that will help us buy our new home.

At a time when all of my life was crashing down around me, Dave's help has brought me immeasurable comfort and peace of mind. It is important to know that with so much bad in the world, there are people like Dave who are so good.

Jeff,

I've had the good fortune of meeting Dave thru this forum, and, finally, a few weeks ago, in person. You're right, he's one of the good guys.

For the record, I'm the cfi Dave put the new owner in touch with, for a basic vfr checkout. He and 410CF flew just fine, although he will need additional study to get up to speed on all the things a modern glass panel can do. He and his young wife (at my age nearly everyone seems young -Smile ) were very excited about owning a 'traveling' airplane.

I hope it brings you some comfort, to know that your plane has found a good home.

Bob

Thanks guys, but you're making my throat feel all weird.
I'm glad I could help. This list and the RV community have brought me tremendous satisfaction. I love my plane and what I've been able to do and see with it, thanks in no small part to a lot of you guys. So giving back a little is easy.

And before you start imagining white, feathery wings sprouting from my back, know that Jeff offered me a fair commission, which after some thought I gladly accepted. So, yeah.

Jeff's been inspiring in his attitude and toughness through his battle. He looks and sounds and gets around a lot better these days than he did a year ago. I'm glad I could help and it was all made possible through Matt Dralle's efforts that provide us all with this forum.

I hope the new owner pops his head in. He's a good pilot and he'd make a good contributor.

Dave, you are a real Mench.
That is Yiddish for a really nice person.
A special person indeed.
