The Tomahawk has a new home. N2407D was a part of the family for the last 10 years or so, and it is now residing at Lawrenceville (LZU). Having bought an Avid Bandit a couple of months ago, I decided not to try to keep two airplanes in a one-airplane hangar. The Avid can fold its wings, but it was still a tight fit for both planes in one hangar. Two separate hangars were not possible, as the “I want a hangar” list at PXE has a 30-man waiting register. I sincerely hope Mike is as happy with the ‘Hawk as I was. It’s a great flyer!
My present ride is an Avid Bandit, a homebuilt Experimental with tube and fabric construction. A Subaru 100HP four-banger spins a three-blade prop and will cruise at around a hundred or so mph. The bird is a lot lighter than the Tomahawk, so it's taking a bit of practice to be comfortable in the cockpit. I'll post some pictures as soon as I can get around to it. The little bird had only 12 hours on it when I brought it to PXE, so I have to get the 40 hours of test flying finished before I can take anyone up. (FAA requirement) Right now, I'm having a blast getting used to the different style of flight.
January 17th - up to 23 hours of my 40.
