Wow, more than a month since I posted. Cav now has 65 hours and really likes to fly.
I will need to do an oil change in about 10 more hours, and I'll take her out of service for a little to inspect carefully and do a few other maintenance items.

Yesterday I took up a few of my construction helpers, Jim Robillard, Ed Rupp, and Jim Darrah. We mainly just flew around the area. Ed flew out to Enchanted Rock for some pictures. With Jim R. we managed to find Hamilton Pool from the air. It's easy to find when you know how.

I'm trying out Google calendar as a scheduling tool for Cav. Thanks to Brian for the idea!

Here is another link that you could save as a bookmark.

Cav's Calender

I think that people will need to email or call me and I'll enter the appointment time.

I've also taken up a few of the airport guys, Jeff Klaas and Tom Lange. I'm chomping at the bit for more airport fly outs. Sun n' Fun is not too far away and it's time to make reservations for that.

Squawks: Still a heavy left wing, but I think I know what to do about that now. The engine has sagged about a quarter inch, I'll have to shim it back up when I take the cowl off for an oil change.
I will also do some minor avionics changes. The Skyview is now capable of driving the autopilot, so I want to add a switch to select between Skyview and 430W as the source.
