JUST KEEPING IN TOUCH

FROM GORDON ISAAC

 I hope to  keep  my  ATF  trike  in the  air   for  another  summer. I take  a  model RC  plane  to  the field, as  we  do  camp  out there  quite often.

FROM WILLY TRINKER

JANUARY 25

Just a quick Hello and hope all is well with you. Still working on my next blog post on the classic GA's that one can fly with an ULPP, so I thought to give you a little update on what's going on in the High Country. 

To start with, it's been a mild winter but it finally did freeze up good and with little snow to insulate the lakes there's a solid foot of ice on most places we fly in to. 

Needless to say, with the Covid restrictions everyone is itching to get and what better way to socially distance than a solo flight to your favorite fishing hole, ..mind you, you've got to drill one first. We have about 7 guys/planes on skis ready to roll and a few more working away on various final touches. Nellie, our BushCaddy, is back at home after some repairs, upgrades, TLC and it's good to have her back in the air. 

School and Training has been slow of course with the restrictions, but interest remains strong. Thanks everyone for their patience and don't give up on this dream of flight. Really hope the later part of 2021 will see some restrictions lifted and allow us to carry on in our goal to introduce new pilots to the fun of recreational flying in this beautiful part of the country. 

As for the next few months, we are looking forward to some great ski-flying and will keep you posted on some of these "Instagram Moments". 

With best regards, all the best, smooth air and safe flights, Willy T.

Homebuilding 

The things we do for our pets! Rather than trying to train a cat I thought it would be more efficient to build a readily removable barrier to make sure those sharp claws donít end up ..  and the interior of the fuselage with that tapering getting darker tail area ..  too much temptation  Ö  and then the little poser even made sure she was in the picture  Ö So now the Kitfox project can get some attention again. Most of the painting got done before it was getting too cold, but it ended up being basement renovation time. Now I can complain about price increases at the building supply as well as at the aircraft supply!
