  4. Hello Everyone, My name is Doran. I just found this forum. I am 50+ years old and have been flying with ratings for over 30 years.

I don't have a memory without airplanes as my first ride was in a Piper Tri Pacer at 4 years of age. I've been involved with homebuilts since 16 years of age and have owned and flown several including my Cygnet.
