My RV-7 originally started out as a tricycle gear, but I recently converted it to a taildragger. Why? Cuz it looks cool!
I've been flying it since 2008 and now have about 800hrs.

Pietenpol project started in July 2010. I have had my “private” since 1995, but have not been able to fly much in the past 5 years. My other love is woodworking, so I decided to marry my two passions. When I started to look at wooded airplanes, I discovered two things – EAA 1114 and the Pietenpol. Jack Phillips was kind enough to give me a ride in his beautiful Piet and the rest in history. I have also really enjoyed the time I have been able to spend with the guys at the Bear Creek Aero Club.

If I had a clone and a large walkout basement full of tools like Jack Phillips does, I would build a KZ VIII. A design from the prolific Swedish engineer Bjoern Andreasson (Buecker Bestmann and Jungman, Cynet, MFI-09, SAAB Sonnett sports car, etc.), it is said that the KZ VIII inspired Walter Extra to stop building Pitts and develop his early monoplane aerobatic ships. Its line are sensuous, and I like working with wood. Niels Nielsen and I have seen two of only three KZ VIIIs in the world at the great Danmarks Flymuseum in Stauning, Denmark. The picture here is of a recent creation, a blue KZ VIII built and flown by former Danish Air Force Draken/F-16 pilot Hardy Vad. The white and red one is an original, with an inline engine.
