Happy to report that 'Piety' (GN-1 Aircamper) took to the skies again last week. Our EAA Chapter built her, and after being damaged in a directional control incident, languished for a few years. Broke my heart to see her sit. Repairs and refurbishment ended up being way more substantial than anticipated, but I learned a lot in the process. Last Wednesday the list of "must dos" reached zero so as a Veterans' Day present to myself took her up for a couple of laps. If you are near St. Louis please stop in to Chapter 64 at Millstadt, IL (please note prior permission, noise abatement procedures and liability waivers at 1IL4.com); we have a couple of Flybabies here as well. Special thanks to Tom Wottreng who rebuilt the motor (purrrr!) and went way above the call of duty in lending his expertise and experience.
