In a warm-up to AirVenture, Richard Hogan, creator of the Innovator aircraft, gave a breakfast update to EAA 690 chapter members this morning at Briscoe Field in Lawrenceville, Ga. A very savvy group of builders/aviators, they asked many good questions, which lead to a robust discussion about kit-built aircraft in general.
Attracting a lot of attention was the 1/4 scale model of the aircraft, which had flown over 100 test flights during the development of the Innovator. Also discussed was the recently announced "Paint Scheme Contest," detailed in a previous news post. Let your kids know about the contest, as there is cash to be won!
Commuter Craft is delighted to announce the winners of the first “Paint Scheme” contest! The Grand Prize Winner is California’s Jenessa Link, and her winning prize was $500. The First, Second, and Third prizes were worth $250, $100, and $50 each respectively in the Adult and Children’s categories. We had a tie for third place in the Children’s category, so we awarded $50 to each contestant. Commuter Craft would like to pass on our appreciation to all entrants for a job well done!
