Dennis has been a licensed pilot for most
of his adult life. He completed this Kitfox in January of 2013,
however delays in securing a Designated Airworthiness Examiner have
kept him from taking his first flight. He chose the 64 H.P. Rotax
532/582 UL engine which should yield a cruise speed of 75
mph. Takeoffs and ladings should both average about 200' with its
low stall speed of 35 mph.
Dennis has accumulated over 400 hours flying time in a very wide
variety of aircraft including those he owned (the same Cherokee 140
three times, a Cherokee 180, Cessna 210, Twin Cessna 310, and a Piper
Turbo Arrow) as well as soloing a Robinson helicopter and gaining time
with friends in several others up to a DC-3. Aside from local
flying - mostly in the San Francisco Bay area, he's ventured to the
Bahamas from Georgia in a Cessna 172 in his Army days.
Upon retiring, Dennis felt himself well prepared to build his own Light
Sport aircraft, having help build two Teenie Two
single-place experimentals with friends.
exhilaration of flying is too keen, the pleasure too great, for it to be neglected as a sport.
