Ray and I added another 2 planes to our 'Hangar 10' in Cloverdale. Spent several hours putting them together from a kit! Already have 2 youngsters ready to learn how to "fly" them..... here is, our Hangar 10 with the 2 new planes...
We sold our Quicksilver MXL II, took in a MXl sport and sold the Sport the same evening! Two sales for the year. woo woo. Rob C found our ad on the Barnstormers Site and started the negotiations from Phoenix. My Adopted Son Ryan was looking for a single seat Quicksilver 103 ultralight which is what Rob had. 25 e-mails and an exchange of video walk a rounds got Rob and his Lady Ann into their truck and trailer heading for Cloverdale. 13 hours later we were shaking hands and tradin planes and money. I like this business!!

Sher and I will be at the Wings Over Wine Country Air Show with our restored 1992 Quicksilver MXL II. We should have plenty of information on the New Quicksilver line-up of aircraft. Our give-a-way will be an introductory flight per day of the Air Show. A special Facebook friend, Jason Pearson, will be here to install the pyrotechnics on a very interesting Ultralight Demonstration. For more information on daily activities follow the link
When: Sept 28-31, 2014
Where: Clear Lake, CA
As you can tell the Pacific Coast Air Show / Museum has moved from August to September which means it’s going to come close to conflicting with the Clearlake Splash In, Anyway, there is no way in the ol' world Sher and I will miss the Splash In. It's one of our favorite things to do with our clothes on. The Splash In will have an extra day this year which to us means more float flyin’ and more meetin' and greetin'. We are really looking forward to intro flights for those who want to fly over the water. C Ya
