Hello all, I'm a new sport pilot in training, been in the game for about 3 years now. I own and fly a CHII, and am working on a Delta Sail Planes Nomad.
My FBO is at SO9 (Hot Springs MT), I was given the hanger at the field (only one there) I gave the guy $100 to seal the deal...
I would post a few pics if I knew how...

Welcome to Sport Pilot Talk. Is CHII a Challenger II? There are lots of friendly folks here with years of light sport experience and good advice to offer.

Vandenberg Tracking Station borrowed "Big Sky" from Montana. :wink:

Was that your unit patch, Stan?

That was one of them, Paul. The "official" early sixties 6596th Instrumentation Squadron (Vandenberg Tracking Station) patch showed a command and control transmitting antenna, a telemetry receiving antenna, and three stars representing MIDAS, SAMOS, and Corona WS-117L reconnaissance satellite missions.
