I have been a bum and haven't done anything on the 2nd level.

Way to go Wayne. It's good to see someone is making progress. Do you have much more to go on Copper?

Ryan, well, you're going to have to move to the front of the class. That way we can keep an eye on you and make sure you get something done. Seriously I know how it gets sometimes. It's been great flying weather all week and I have too much work to get done before bad weather to take he time to fly. I'm still hopeful though.

Steve,

I, too, have to admit a complete lack of progress on my part. It's not because I'm not interested, it's just that life keeps getting in the way; now, the weather is starting to go to crap on weekends, so...


I keep thinking about it!

For me seems like when I hit the flight marks I'm alone, when I have a witness around can't find lift. Hoping for at least one more shot before winter sets in.

Well, as for me winter is preventing me from pursuing the program. Currently I'm creating a ton of balsa dust building. Working on a Bird of Time and a 100" sailplane that's a combination of several different woodies.
I will be ready in spring to knocking out the tasks

Am working hard in the shop getting planes ready to fly and to begin the program as soon as the weather is a bit more consistent.

Been a very mild winter here in Portland and it got to 58 degrees yesterday so took out the Radian to restart my Copper venture and get it done this year. After some short flights searching the field for lift, I got an 11 minute flight -only reason I came down was battery was at 11v

Really jazzed for a day in January. Putting SSP stickers on planes to generate interest.

Btw, where do I get app forms and where to send?
