Just a note to introduce myself. I recently picked up a Firestar KXP w/447. It is currently based at 14N in eastern PA, where I also fly in the glider club. This is my 3rd ul/experimental, coming from a Cobra & a Phantom.

I have a Commercial license, having flown ag planes in the midwest, and did some CFI and glider tow work back east. I've always liked Kolbs, having met Homer a few times over the years before is recent passing, and am anxious to fly this one. The first flight was awesome! This confirms my prediction that this is a huge step up in progression of planes!

I know this list is a great source of veteran information, and look forward to good advice since one can always learn from others experience.

Anyone else on the list in this area...give me a holler.
Fair skies,
FS KXP/447
