Eventually, the PA12 will be back in action.

 meantime, the Cessna 140 which was purchased from a former tailwheel student some time ago will undergo some work and take up the slack.  It is a terrific trainer, powered by an O 235 engine and is equipped with a climb prop.  In the meantime, while Walt Lasecki and I work on the backup 140, my pals at Outlaw Aviation have very nicely offered either Walt Lasecki's Cessna 140 or the Outlaw Aviation Cessna 120.  Either will be a great trainer and very useful to us as we continue to teach advanced tailwheel technique.  Prices will be adjusted accordingly.  My sincerest thanks to all those who have extended their best wishes during this interim time.  And a very special thanks to Walt Lasecki who has been so generous with his skill, knowledge and time.

Brian (L) and son Hooper when we had a glider ride operation.
