    Airplane Taxes

    Fortunately, New York is tax free. At least for the airplane.

    Hi Sandpiper, Yes, my grandpa was Noel Wien. I was pretty sad too! I ended up flying for Era before moving south. Living in NY now. Kent

    Amazingly it was my daughter’s idea to do the trip. Twist my arm! Can’t believe it went off without a hitch. And then there was this bonus:

    Flight Design has a new section of their website called ‘Stories.’ I wrote about our New York to Seattle trip here. https://flightdesign.com/stories The flight home was done solo in a day and a half. 18 hours of flying, 96 gallons of fuel. Both trips were a blast.

    She won’t start?

    I had the same problem. For me, it just turned out to be the battery. Odessey battery was about 6 years old if I remember correctly.

    Oh wow. You just can’t imagine how easy it was on Saturday. There was radio silence for 5 minutes at a time with no arrivals at noon. Crowds were light and on Sunday, I could see the expo buildings and visit anyone without 6-deep crowds of people. I think i lucked out. A perfect two-day visit during our NY to Seattle adventure.

    Anyone make it to Oshkosh this year? I hadn’t been since 2002 and wow, it’s changed! For the better. The night airshow is spectacular. Flying in was surprisingly easy with plenty of spots available. Leaving Monday morning. New York to Seattle via Oshkosh.
