Hi Bryant,

 

Sorry, I rjust noticed that I responded to the no reply email address.  How does 9/10 work for you?  That is the Open House at Packer Field from 11a on.  I'll be there late afternoon but there will be eats and drinks and Stearmans, etc hopping free rides.

Hi Bryant,

Sure, we can arrange a time to get together.  Next few weeks I'm traveling, but sometime in August should work.

Thanks Bryant!  I'd advise converting to a CP-65 if you can, but I am enjoying my LP-65 even with the 0145 B-2.

Welcome to our Porterfield Airplane Club on-line Bryant. We are glad to have you aboard. How is the progress on the LP65 coming along? Keep us informed.
