    That's a beauty! Did you have 150 exhausts? Looks like what I have.

    Mark,

    You aren't that far from me, I flew through there a few weeks ago. I'll ping you next time I'm that way.

    Also, here is my old Cessna:

    Hey - you're talking to a guy flying a Citabria 7ECA with an O-200 for power... No flaps, and nominally 600 lbs useful load, but climb is about 250-300 fpm at gross weight, and she tops out at 95 mph at redline. Cruise is about 85 mph. Still fun to fly, and a couple of hours in the pattern, doing stop-and-go landings is both fun and challenging. I've improved my slipping ability about 1000% since getting this plane.

    You're gonna have a blast with the 140!

    Thanks! I did try the Luscombe out but too small.

    I agree. I trained in a 150 but prefer the 140 look. Could just be because the little wheel in the back. Thanks, I look forward to it. The numbers aren't all that impressive to be honest, with a C-85, tiny flaps and 456 lbs useful load, but it'll be more than adequate for now.

    Thanks Dennis! True there's a reason insurance companies don't like Hood River, but at least they have grass to play on.
