Own and fly a 1941 Stearman to help generate revenues for aviation non-profit organizations. Current restoration projects are 2 Cessna 195's and 2 Porterfield's one FP-65 and one LP-65. Have the privilege of flying a B-25 and preforming return to service test flights for different aviation museums. First aircraft soloed, Luscomb 8A in the 1950's. Goal  for completion of the Porterfield projects is Oct. 2016 Thanks for the help and interest.
