The question I have is..Who was his SP CFI.....Did he have to do all 20 hrs in the T-Craft

Thanks for the reply, it's very much needed here in Central IL. Myself if I had a SP CFI I would start a school just for the type of fliers I am speaking of, the man with the EAB single seater that would otherwise be labeled a Fat UL. But today is registered EAB.

Maybe make it a Club thing and the CFI is paid through the Club not by how many hrs he/she teaches. Something like this. make the members the owners of this club, everyone has some imput and they control who runs things.

I dream.......come dream with me...lol

I think he used a regular CFI, because this happened early on. He might of been the first sport pilot in Illinois. I don't know if all of his training was in the T-Craft or not. He may of had some previous training before.

If you are speaking of Matry the place he hangars or use to hangar, not sure if he is still there, but those are some of the nicest people I have met.
John invites me to fly over all the time, but its about 7 miles away and I do not go that far from home. I have flown there before, but just not comfortable doing it.

Marty and those men and women over at John's place are some of the best, like most of you folks in aviation. One thing I noticed from being in aviation only a short time and being 50 something. You folks in aviation are a different bread. Others need to look at this group, It amazes me how nice and just out right friendly aviation people are.

Now don't get me wrong you also have a lot of headstrong folks, but I believe you have that right to be a little headstrong, IMO anyway.

Marty takes great care in his birds and I love those Mice things he made to keep mice out. Someday I will make me some of these. But like I tell my wife, everything I do takes a lot of time...I am very slow....lol
