Ah, such is life.  Sorry, to hear that news, but  As you know you are welcome anytime solo or with company.  The ice is cold the BBQ is hot and the women – well, you’ll have to bring you own {Open-mouthed smile)
Looking forward to it.

Thanks Ed and everyone for the retirement wishes.  Being associated with this community has been a pleasure and one of the best parts was supporting so many others in their wish to fly.  I hope to continue that even in a reduced way. 

Ed,  I'll be taking you up on that Gin & Tonic by the pool one of these days but alas, my fling with rotary aviation lasted far longer than the one with Diana :>)  so I'll probably be arriving solo.

Blue skies & tail winds to all and keep those flying dreams alive,

Ah, my old friend, a sad day indeed for some of us, but happy for you and Diana.  More time for the dragon’s tail in NC and other fun stuff.
I fondly remember our first contact shortly after your (and the Otter) appeared on the cover of KITPLANE – way long time ago.  I recall getting one of your first products – the ignition computer (in the tin box) along with you excellent manual – bound with copper brads – remember that?
I join so many others with a hearty “THANKS!” – few of us would be flying behind a rotary today – if not for you and your products and knowledge so freely shared.
Now you’ll have time for you and Diana to drop by for a visit and our famous “Gin and Tonic” mixes by the pool.
See you around.
Best Regards and Wishes

Retired from new production ( still have some EC3 & EM3s in stock)  but I plan to support everything in the field for the foreseeable future.
I'm working with the Cozy Girls at CG Products to pick up production on gear drives.

I just heard that Tracy has retired.  Have we been talking about it but I missed it?  Happy for Tracy, sad for us.  Anyone out there have the time an skills to pick up where Tracy leaves off.
Paul Lamar is working on an improved gear box that has promise, but so few of his projects ever come to fruition that it might be a long wait.
