John and Connie built this Kitfox 7 Super Sport from a kit, completing it in 2015 after a 2 1/2 year build. It's powered by a 100 HP Rotax 912 ULS and has a Garmin G3X Touch glass panel.
John & Connie were honored to win an Outstanding Workmanship award at Airventure 2016 and then Grand Champion Light Sport Plane at Airventure 2019.
Randy Designed this baloon himself and named it "Simplexity". It was featured on the cover of the 2016 Michigan Aeronautical Chart along with his previous balloon.
Randy also designed his previous balloon and named it "Avec-le-Vent" (French for "With the Wind".) Seen here landing on the numbers at Mason (KTEW) May 6, 2006.
Greg and Dave built this RV-6A with a Mazda 13B Rotary engine (180-220 HP)
The Mazda 13B sports Dual plugs, coils, EFI Injectors and ECUs. The 2.17:1 PRSU reduces the 6250 engine RPM to 2880 for the 3 blade prop.

Ken built this Kitfox Model 7 with the first flight in June 2009. He sold it to a Gentleman from Washington state in 2016.

Celebrating the completion of Phase 1 Flight Testing in August 2013
Bill and Doug started building this Glastar in September 2013 and completed it in May 2018. They powered it with a Lycoming 360 with Electronic fuel injection and ignition and used the Stratus system for instruments.
When I found this Kolb 12 years ago, I saved up through the winter and bought it the next spring. After I got it home I found a guy who had a Mark 3 (a two-place Kolb) and for the price of gas he taught me to fly. I enjoy being able to take it up at least once a week in the summer and few times in the winter.
When Terry bought this airplane 50 years ago, it literally was a basket case, just an empty shell of an airplane, with everything in boxes. Terry says "it has seen a lot of history, and my personal journey through the aerospace world."
Terry's RV-8 first flew in June 2006. Seen here sitting on the ramp in front of Base Operations at Wright-Patterson AFB in Ohio.
Don and Deanna enjoy flying Young Eagles as well as flying to camping destinations in their 1959 Cessna 172 A
