More than 400 sets of plans have been sold in 19 countries. 22 are flying and somewhere around 100 are under construction. It is a plans built aircraft. It is not a kit airplane. However, many skilled artisans have produced and will sell various components that an inexperienced builder might find daunting to undertake. Serial # 1 took 12th place at AWAC (Doug Jardine). Four showed up at Sun 'n Fun and two were seen at Oshkosh. Since it takes about 3 years to build an airplane that is pretty good considering when the plans were first made available. I mounted the engine on mine for the first time yesterday. That was a significant event in my life! My wing and ailerons are done and I am hooking up the engine and preparing to cover my fuselage. Lots of sheet metal and fabric work remains before painting. Maybe next year, or the next. I keep trying to remember " The destination is the journey". Dick Rihn
