As most in the slope forum know ,now that the Bearcats finished and flown I moved onto my next build. It is going to be a 2.9 mtr Span Fouga 90 PSS
so far the fuse is just about done the tails cut and sheeted and the wings are cut waiting to be sheeted . The build is exactly the same method as the Bearcat was (no surprize there ) Hopefully with proper planning and time the 90 will prove a great flight buddy in the car with the big Bear

Have to say I feel pretty good about the slope fest all the work that was put into setting it up and running the show was all worth while, everyone got lots of air time and lots of positive comments about the site. The fact that pilots leaving where booking the accomodation for 2010's event showed the genuine interest the event created . I personally have plenty of memories that will last a life time ,meeting some of the well known names On RCG and some absolute slope newbies who left the event totally hooked on slope flying
All the sponsors where absolutely teriffic and generous with there gifts and many at the event went home with more aircraft than they arrived with.
I think that next year More people will take the oppertunity to use the full week rather than the last long weekend now they know that the site is as good as it is .Stay tuned for Manilla Slope Fest 2010.
