      High Si3rra videos are a guilty pleasure of mine on the BCP web site and other outlets. I'm going to get out there one day!

        As a follow up, I got to meet up with two bearhawkers at the fly-in. Mike Creek and Cathy Page. Thanks Blackrock for talking to me about your plane and build (this is Paul), bummed I didn't get the time to take you up on your offer of a ride.

          Blackrock is a great advocate for the Bearhawk. He is realistic and happy to share his experience. He gave me a ride in his BH and hooked me on them and I think he did the same with Z. He was also very helpful and provided great advice when I was working through the phase one testing of another Bearhawk. Might be a good thing you didn't have time to go for a ride😎
