Get Your Haught Wings

At the Haught Wings Cafe!

I've created a new blog for Herb to help him keep his parents and friends updated on his RV-6 plane-building project. The FAA requires recordkeeping anyway; this seemed like the most satisfying way to do it.

Herb and Nathaniel are really excited about the cafe. I've cooked up the first few posts, but Herb plans to write some as well. I volunteer to let him write all the technical posts. Leave me the sweet stuff! Say, would that be "pie in the sky"?

I plan to cover the Experimental Aircraft Association meetings that we attend and interview as many interesting pilots as I can, starting with my dad, father-in-law, and mother-in-law. My mother-in-law belongs to the 99s, a women's flying group that was founded by Amelia Earhart.

Emma got a video camera for Christmas, so she is looking forward to capturing some exciting stuff in the garage as the project progresses, preferably something with sparks but no flames. I'm sure with Herb's mechanical expertise, he will come up with some wonderful design improvement or technique that will be a great subject for a video.

Hope to see you there!

What an exciting family project! Your children are so fortunate to be able to watch this happening. I'm looking forward to watching it grow!
