He and his wife who helps run his business showed up on a great sunny evening in Seattle. We started at 3:00 finished by 5:00 and I got my airworthiness pink slip and Phase 1 documentation. He gave me a 100nm radius for my Phase 1 flying. This means in my first 40 hours where I can't have any passengers I am at least good to hit most any airport in western Washington. Also, I know it looks like he is handing me a blank white paper, trust me, its not ! :-)
The plane became something more than a hunk of expensive metal in about 2 hours, with the airworthiness certificate, this is now an actual airplane !
