Today was a real treat- I was able to catch up with Dave in Vermont to spend some time talking about his Bearhawk. The weather was perfect and it was a great way to spend the morning. Dave let me pick his brain with all sorts of questions about his construction. We’re using almost the same engine and prop, and we both came upon kits that were already started. We both also started building at around the same time, which doesn’t say much for my building speed! Here are a few photos of flying in Dave’s airplane, and of the pancake breakfast in Rutland, VT.
Dave’s airplane performs very well, and it helps validate my decisions on engine and prop choices.
I wonder why Maule put this hole in their wing root fairing? Water drainage?
