Above Jan poses with his newly completed Rotorway 162F. Jan flew his first solo flight following a week of training with Orv.
While I was there I assisted Jan in flipping the front landing bow and installing Andrew Burr's Extended and reinforced skids. Here Jan is drilling the holes in the skids for the rear gear shoe attachment bolts.
In the above photo Jan is working on unbolting the front landing gear so that he can flip it prior to installing Andrew's skids.
Above Jan is refueling for another training flight.
In the above photo Jan is performing his first solo flight in his 162F
Notice Andrew Burr's extended reinforced skids on Jan's ship
