By Jim Campbell, ANN CEO/Editor-in-Chief/Test Pilot (Arrogant, Over-Opinionated Know-It-All/Test Dummy)

ANN E-I-C Note: OK… serious apologies for dragging this out… but things are crazy here… we’ve hired some new people, we’re training aggressively, we have a stunning number of new clients, and business is… well, busy. I’ve been editing parts Four and Five and already have the final edit of Part Six underway. We take these reports VERY seriously… and based on some of the drivel I see (especially on YouTube) that tries to pass itself off as a so-called flight report or evaluation, we may be one of the few left, who do. So… without further delay, let’s get on with Part Three… Each seat adjusts easily, A small ball connected to a cable, close up and under the seat, acts as a seat release and then you shift your gluteus maximus (and some of ours are more maximus than others) until yo

While there has been some consideration, off and on, toward updating the nearly 5 pound book, the near implosion of the SportPlane and kit industry over the last decade has made such a pursuit an unwieldy one... until now.
