Well Simon, thats realy good news, I will certainly take you up on the offer to come over and have a look. I do understand the way the LAA has to be involved from the very start, I have been in touch with the Bristol LAA branch, most helpfull.I am in the process of getting things ready for the build which includes a new roof on the garage weather permiting and a couple of kit cars to finish so no hurry. I am keen to check that the kit is indeed all there and that it conforms to the most recent updates. As for parts, the lists which I do have are quite vague, you would think they would have decent drawings or even photographs of all the parts so as to aid identification, perhaps I will compile my own as I go.
I will certainly be in touch in a couple of weeks.

Many thanks John

Hi John,
I have a Q2 in Somerset which is being refurbished. If you want to come an have a look give me a shout. I also have an LAA inspector locally who is familiar with mine. As Mick says don't do anything until you have spoken to Francis Donaldson at the LAA .  You can't just get any LAA Inspector as he needs to have the correct sign offs to inspect your type of aircraft at the various build stages. If you are unfamiliar with the parts I could always pop over to show what is what and let you take it from there. Give me a shout offline to discuss. quickieq2uk@...

Hello from a new Q1 owner in the UK,

well its not a new plane as it is still in the boxes! and it is about 20 years old. I am also not realy a new kid,, at 53 years old I rarely get refered to as a kid these days but I am new to building aircraft and to flying.

My main reason for joining is to gather as much information as possible about these type of homebuilt planes as I can before I actually get started on the build.

I have to renew my garage roof before I can get started and finish off a couple of other projects that I have on the go, Kit build cars. Then its all out to get the plane up and flying.

I have a list of parts but not knowing a aleron from a turnbuckle I could do with some pictures of the items concerned. I do hope that my kit contents is complete despite its age.

I got a new digital camera for christmas so I plan to take lots of pictures of the build.

Do you have any members in the UK? I am in Somerset.

I understand that the Q1 is accepted by the LAA here in the UK and that I will have the build overseen by a senior engineer who will advise me and sign off the build and the completed plane when it is finished. Is that how things are done in other countries?

Well enough from me for now

Kind regards John
