    HI All,

    Just recently joined and wanted to say hello. We're in the process of purchasing a 1986 IO-360-B4M Skybolt in Florida. I've owned an airplane before (1950 Bellanca Cruisemaster) but that was a long time ago...

    I'm not a great builder, but I'm good at taking instruction... and looking forward to doing a lot of flying in Southern Florida!

    I fly the B757/B767 for a day job.. but the Skybolt is going to be the fun part.

    Looking forward to all seasoned advice and experience on this forum!

    Hi and welcome to our forum.
    Have you purchased that good looking Skybolt yet?

    You say that your not a builder. Is there any building to be done on her?
    Keep us updated, always interested.

    Sorry for the slow response.. From another thread, you can see the gear issues we faced but are fixing :).

    Every airplane is unique... I'm looking forward to getting to know this one!
