Burl Huel Burnley, 7/23/1923 - 8/1/2004
This project is dedicated to the memory of my grandfather who, with each visit, never failed to tell me the stories of his youth flying in Piper 'Clubs'. He always believed in me, my exploits and my dream of flying an airplane that I built. The photo above was taken as we were about to depart on his first airplane ride in 62 years -- he was 80 years old at the time.
My only regret is that I was unable to finish my project before his passing, but I know without a doubt that he will be watching and grinning with me as I bring the throttle forward one day...
