Dr. Steve was a hanger partner of mine for many years, and was a great guy. He was a low time pilot on Cesnas before flying the Q and eventually got very good at short field landings.
Steve loved to fly and made many cross country trips from his home base in Abbotsford B.C. to places like Reno, Vegas, Oshgosh ( 3 times ) and Whitehourse in the Yucon Terratories.
Steve eventually switched to a Jabaru 6 cyl engine after having 3 engine bloc failers with the Revmaster.
Steve was a good friend, and still miss him

My first flight was nothing like this and I’m sure many others experienced the same as me on their first flight, as it was a non event.
Apparently Steve didn’t have much if any complex or fast slick airplane time. As the old timers on this list know, it’s all about controlling speed and not over controlling the plane.
