Definitely a cool airplane, but wouldn't there be more interest in a two place?
Probably shouldn't ask the guy who builds a two place with one seat?
Good luck with the Griggs thing. You've been a busy man of late.

I take one weekend off the forum to attend a Acro training camp and this is what I read Monday morning? Unbelievable and great news. Congratulations and good luck Chris. I may need a CF cowl to go with my Wolf Gear and Catto Prop.

Yeah, I sent that to him, along with a t-shirt with the same graphic. It was from our June contest a couple years ago, Margo Chase did the artwork. I have a canvas if it in my living room.

Nice write up from Steve and Kathy. Enjoy the moment.
And thanks again for asking me along on the trip. It was cool being part of a rather momentous occasion, the start of your new adventure, and getting to hang with Steve Wolf was pretty awesome.
Now get to work and finish that ASIIS!

Great news Chris. Congratulations on the new venture. I have been admiring your work on the ASIIS for a while now.

I was just down there at Steve's hanger a few months ago. Spent a couple of hours talking with Steve. He was very helpful with sharing information on Kathy's Pitts. He had her bring it over just so we could get a good look at it with the cowl off. I took a lot of pictures of it and the project Wolf Pitts sitting next to it. I just regret not getting a picture with Steve. I remembering watching him perform at EAA When I was just a boy in Samson, always a great show.

Good luck with the business, hope to come up and see your project sometime. You are only an hour flight from KDMW where I keep my plane.

Curtis.

Well we will be temporarily set up here in our current hanger in a week or so. Our new hanger should be up by the spring. They just finished the foundation before this latest round of snow. When we get a good week again they are going to start standing the framework.

Best of luck,
