FAA Airworthiness Certificate Issued for LoCamp N527CL!



After years of focused effort, and seven months of intense work by a dedicated team of volunteers, the first LoCamp built from a production kit, N527CL, has been issued its FAA Airworthiness Certificate and Operating Limitations, and can now begin flight testing!  This was indeed an event worth celebrating, especially among my small group of friends and relatives who helped me make it happen.  There is just something special and very gratifying in seeing an AIRPLANE being born out of a homebuilt "project."


The only note of disappointment we are experiencing is that, with a full agenda of taxi and flight testing before us, including the 40 hous minimum of actual flight time required by the Experimental Amateur-built Operating Limitations, it does not look like it will be possible to finish it all in time to make the 1,000 mile cross-country flight to exhibit at Sun 'N' Fun in late April.  We are truly sorry about this, but look forward to campaigning N527CL around the country this summer, including a possible appearance at Airventure in late July.


Meanwhile, we have a steady stream of visitors to our shop at the Tri-County Regional Airport (LNR) in Southwest Wisconsin.  If you are in the neigborhood, be sure to stop in.  (But call ahead.) This airplane is something to see in person and up close!
