      Big Thanks to Frank Roush who put all the kids in his trike and let them "fly" !
      It was great to see 4 Solo students out there as well (Henry wasn't pictured)
      The Trikes definitely had a lot of attention due to their unique feel, hopefully we will generate some new friends and pilots out of it!
      The Australian Solo Can Display sure gave everyone a good laugh! We are on to something!

      We had a big gathering at Double Eagle Airport Saturday 8/26, and the news came out the day before to get an article on the event. We managed to get 2 shots of trikes on the news, first in Red is Frank Dempsey then Myself. It's always fun to get a shot on the news (as long as the trike is in one piece of course!!).
