90% Complete, 90% left to do. Prior builders choose good upgrades/changes over the years, such as dual hydraulic brakes Good to excellent detail work. As the latest builder (goal is to complete in 2 years). Edit (08/29/2023) - Bwaahahaha! Many things need to be checked out, validated during the start of the process. Engine was assembled in 2010 and never run. I've got the turbo upgrade kit to put on and will do a partial teardown/overhaul at the same time. The first 1.5 years of my ownership is getting the garage ready for this unexpected purchase. Some riveting left to do, partial glass panel to complete/test. Decide how to implement ADS-B out, and if is feasible without fully investing in new glass.
Just some photos and videos from the Kelly Airpark 2022 Pancake Breakfast!

I found this factory quick build kit that was partially built and decided maybe it was a good time to build another airplane…even though I travel 7-8 months a year for work. What was I thinking! ? Anyway, you are welcome to follow along, comment, ask questions, and hopefully, it will help some other builders along the way. I deploy for work about 6-7 months a year, so there may be some gaps in my updates. I also added all posts prior to April 2022 well after I had taken the photos...but going forward I will do a better job of posting updates!
Hi to anyone who has information about the Zipper Big Bore Kit for the 912S Rotax engine. I am interested in increasing the HP of my 912S but when I tap on the Zipper website a message pops up saying "There has been a critical error on this website". I am wondering if this means Zipper no longer sell/support this Kit for the Rotax 912S ??. Can anyone shed any light on this please ?. Thanks in advance. Regards, Allen B.
