Welcome to Our Building Log!

You’ve found the place for more than you ever wanted to know about our Bearhawk project! N805TB is a Bob Barrows-designed Bearhawk 4-Place with plans number 1063, built from Bearhawk Aircraft/Avipro Kit number 60.  Kit number 60 started life in Marietta GA with Richard Ogletree, and we purchsed it from him in 2009.  It’s now located at E40, a small airport just south of Hickory, North Carolina. Our first flight was on December 11, 2013 and like other airplane projects, it’s never really “finished.” Often this building log runs a little bit behind reality, which allows me to catch many of my own mistakes before I make them public. It’s important to note that I usually don’t have any idea what I’m talking about, and this information for entertainment only!
