Here’s a few quick hits since I’ve been so long winded the last couple posts. *** We hit almost 70 degrees yesterday here in upstate NY. Wow! Snow’s mostly gone. Flyin’ fever is setting in. *** From Texas comes news that Michael Combs has left on a last warm-up trip in his Remos GX before embarking next month on a 50-state tour. *** He’s dubbed the project, sponsored by Remos and other commercial and private donors, “Flight for the Human Spirit”. *** He intends for the project to serve as a “beacon” to remind us all of the need to never give up on our dreams. For background, here’s my blog piece from last Oct. *** The trip starts from Salina, Kansas on April 5: here’s a map of his route. *** Salina is where the late, great Steve Fossett took off for his successful solo, nonstop globe-girdler in 2005. *** The annual Sun ‘n Fun spring bash is ramping up. Check here for who’s coming at this always-fantastic airshow based in Lakeland, FL. *** My blogmate Dan Johnson looked at FAA’s crystal ball-gazing forecast of LSA growth on his his SPLOG recently, so I’ll send you there rather than duplicate his masterful summary. *** Short tell: FAA’s numbers are kinda strange, but the agency predicts steady growth ahead for LSA, and GA. *** Stay tuned! *** —photo courtesy Michael Combs
