Thanks Kerry,

I too am a builder's helper, but on a Lancair IV. I spend some tine lurking
on the Lancair list (LML). It is an interesting place. As often is the
case in some lists there are a few "Gurus" that tend to imtimidate.
Recently there was a post that suggested that like the Mooney, RV, ETC
pilots it might be nice to have an annual fly-in to get together and share
stuff and socialize.

I couldnt believe the responses he got. "Yes if it is East of a line
between such and so." "Yes if it is in the South East." And the
clincher, "Yes if it is within 150 nautical miles" of his home base. This
from one of the biggest mouths on the list and from a guy who flys an
airplane capable of speeds close to 300mph. I guess more than 30 minutes
airtime on a cross country is too much.

I love my little airplane. I've spend nine yours in a day getting where I
want to go and low enough to see where I went. I guess I'll never
understand the pilots that profess a love of flying, but want to spend as
little time in their airplanes as they can.

Lowell,
. I guess I'll never understand the pilots that profess a love of flying,
but want to spend as little time in their airplanes as they can.

One of my favorites... If you LOVE flying then why are you in such a hurry
to get there ?
Have a Safe New Year !!
