Flying

 

When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.
-Leonardo da Vinci

As true and certain as the sun rising in the morning, Leonardo's words describe what every pilot has felt since their first take off.  John and Christine have shared a common interest in aviation since they met.  Today, Christine is a student pilot working towards her private pilot certificate, and John is an instrument rated private pilot.

Together we have taken numerous sight seeing trips with small, single engine aircraft.  We've taken a couple of longer trips to visit family, which will likely become more prevalent in coming years.

Perhaps the greatest aviation adventure we have embarked on thus far has been the building of our own aircraft.

The Plane  -  The Cozy Mk IV is a 4 place, composite construction, canard, pusher aircraft.  It is plans built, not a kit, meaning it is built almost entirely from raw foam and fiberglass instead of prebuilt components.  Clicking the link will take you to our Cozy Build Site.
