    Default Hello from St. Petersburg, FL

    Hello all. I'm a prospective builder in Florida. We are finalizing the sale of our Cessna 206, which will free up the maneuver space to purchase a kit. We no longer took enough family trips to justify the six seats. I'm active Army, and the only hold for purchasing a kit is a possible two year tour to Korea starting in summer of 18. Though I'm impatient to start, it seems like a two year storage early in the build isn't a healthy way to proceed.

    I've decided on the S-20 as it meets the new family mission. I hope our kids (currently 11, 8, and 5) get involved in the build and I can give them flight instruction next to me when the time comes. Once they're out of the house it will provide enough capability for my wife and I to do some camping.

    I do have a bunch of decisions to make on options and engine, but it's a relief to know it's going to happen.

    I've enjoyed reading many threads on here and will continue to spelunk into the depths of knowledge. Thanks.

    Brett

    Welcome to the forums Brett-glad to have you. Lots of S-20's being built. I've always thought the real fun part was looking at different engines and avionics. You've got a fun road ahead...
