Today I had committed to taking care of my equipment. I spend about 6 hours under and over the wings and fuselage, except the high part of the rudder I couldn’t reach. I cleaned it first, and waxed it second; and buffed it out third.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day, but it was a considerable amount of work. Having a hangar facing the runway is most definitley a bonus. Even the spinners got polished and came up looking good.

Fully retired now, unless something interesting comes along. I’ve enjoyed a lucrative career as an Electrical Engineer, Certified Software Solutions Developer, and Project Manager. An excellent and fun career that I’m very proud of. I began flying commercially in Dash-8 aircraft for Piedmont Airlines, and moved on to instruct in the Gulfstream 280; WestWind; and Astra jet aircraft. I’ve also been blessed with a type rating in the B-25 bomber in a fortunate turn of events. My wife, Beverly, and I currently own and operate a beautifully restored PA30 Twin Comanche, which we use to explore the CONUS.
