day, The new design RW28 is progressing and is ready for cover and
paint. If all goes well it could be test flown before the end of the
year and just in time the coldest weather here in South Carolina.
seems that I cannot let a year go by without testing a new plane and
turning my ground crew/flim crew into human icecubes from the prop
blast. I will keep Tomas updated and I'm sure he will let folks know
asap. Good job and thanks to him for doing such a good job on the
and I will get him the missing info soon.(sorry, my bad)
Also I have had many question as to what are the other RW aircraft
besides the ones that I sell plans to. There have been 28 (thus the
thru RW28) to date and I will list them all for reference. Some planes
never got enough interest to warrant the time involved to draw plans.
Others were built for someone else as a personal plane or a plane
market themselves and then there were some that just did not fly well
and were taken out of service. And here they are.

Hope this explains about

I have been very
busy at Honeywell Aerospace for the last 6 years. This
year I have worked 825 hours of overtime helping keep rescue helicopters
in the air flying and I have been promised that in the coming year
will actually be able to get back to normal living. (no overtime!)
look forward to getting back to being more involed in aviation and
helping folks, I will produce kits once again and hopefully build
planes a year. I look forward to the coming year and would like to
each and everyone a happy and safe holiday season. If anyone has the
chance to stop by and see me please do so. Happy Holidays.
If you are getting to fly then "Watch your six!'
