Luscombe Silvare 8A
( one 12.5 gal wing tank , hat shelf in back of pilot and passenger)
I began lessons on 8/19/07 with Doc Ullman in his Luscombe 8A . Soloed 9/17/08 and passed my practical test on 4/19/09 . Being on the road for work and coordinating my schedule , Doc's schedule and weather made training a dragged out experience . I purchased my Luscombe on 7/10/09 and flew it home from Fitchburgh, MA . Although I had read a lot about the Luscombe being hard to fly , I find it a pleasure . my only complaint is I wish the cockpit was a few inches wider , so you have to choose your passengers carefully .

"PASSION FLIGHTS FOR LIFE" The chapter will welcome Jim Davis (EAA member) in his Savannah XL Experimental and provide ground assistance when he stops at the Fulton County airport (Johnstown, NY). Jim, a cancer victim/survivor, plans to fly to all 48 contiguous states hoping to increase awareness about the importance of early detection and that there is life after cancer. His flight started in his home state of Arkansas on April 29 and is progressing east to Florida where he will turn north and then fly up the coast to Maine. Johnstown, NY is his stop after Rutland, VT as his trip goes west. Another goal of Jim's flight is to give rides to cancer patients and cancer survivors at his stops. To reach his goals, he is asking local EAA chapters to get the word out. Jim's online blog is "flyinggeminpurplepassion.blogspot.com/". Expected arrival is the week of May 24th (5/24 would be arrival date with one stop per day from 5/4).
