New Member-Greetings to All

Greetings fellow Aviators - I have been flying since 1970, licensed in 1974, and flying my 1966 Cherokee 180C for the past 34 years. It has been a great airplane, comfortable, capable, and AFFORDABLE on a teachers salary. Over time, I designed the paint in 1985, gave it a new interior, updated the tail beacon, reconfigured the panel, installed a factory zero time O-360-A4A, updated the avionics, and yesterday completed the installation of a TruTrak Vizion autopilot. The aircraft is hangared at Kenosha Regional Airport, Wisconsin.

I am semi-retired from public science education and industrial training, Current CFI, Commercial ASEL, Commercial Rotorcraft Helicopter, and Remote Pilot, all as a hobby for enjoyment and to improve my skill as an aviator.
