Re: Quickie in New Mexico?
I guess I should have been more clear, I'm really only looking into
buying a flying airplane (and yes, I've been around the aviation
community enough that "flying" doesn't always mean flying. If I'm
going to build an airplane, I'm going to wait a couple years. I
realize that popping up and asking a bunch of peole I've never met
before for a ride in their airplane probably isn't the way to get a
flight, but I'd really like to see how it flies before I put the
effort into researching, buying or building one.

It's even worse if, like many builders, you invest a ton of timebut

you almost certainly don't have time to build or maintain :)to
