Airnutz:

Very nice! Complete with a 5 year plan, and micromanagement.

Nooooo! I don't want the military or corporate production involved at all! :lol: I was thinking Ultralight homebuilt.
Some of our "weight challenged" members may be pushed into the Sport Pilot or Standard Category..and one or 2
members, I daresay..may have some trouble if the new TSA proposal is passed. :shock:

A Warbird for the masses! If we made kits, would our bodies and gear fulfill the 51% requirement? Since I'm not
the actual maker of the "fuselage", would my parents have to "own" the paperwork? So many details! :cry:

It would essentially be a replica Warbird, but if an owner/pilot is ex-military does that qualify it as a "true" Warbird?

Too small for the Warbug category. Hmmm...Wargnats...Warnits...Warmites?? :D :D :D

Brainstorming in Texas.... :rolleyes:

Rich

Dunno if I want a unicycle that close to my..ummm..er..umm..my lower "cylinder barrels", Rich. As well as
on hard landings, the unicycle is dangerously close to being "plunged-up" the ol' bombay! :shock:

I think I'll stick with the classic look and safety of the "wheelpants"! :wink:

:D :D The world would the poorer without the cross-pollination of fields of interest. Imagine no Allison/Merlin hydroplanes,
tractors, and mudbuggies. No Aerocars, flying tanks or flying submarines..no "RATO/Chevy leaves road into the side of a cliff"myths..:wink:
